4 pound lean whole beef rib(s), trimmed of visible fat
1 1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp reduced-calorie mayonnaise
1 1/2 tsp horseradish sauce
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp thyme, chopped
2 Tbsp dill, fresh, chopped


* Preheat oven to 375°F. Season roast with salt and pepper.

* In a small bowl, combine garlic, mustard, mayonnaise and horseradish. In another small bowl, combine parsley, thyme, dill and 1 tablespoon of mustard mixture.

* Place meat, rib-bone down, in a roasting pan; coat top with remaining mustard mixture and cook meat until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of roast registers 110°F. Coat roast with remaining mustard mixture and press herb mixture onto mustard with your hands.

* Continue cooking roast until a thermometer inserted in center of meat registers 140°F for medium, or longer until desired degree of doneness. Cover loosely with foil and then let stand 20 to 30 minutes before carving into 12 thick slices. Yields 1 slice per serving.
