The sheer size of this dish led to its nickname "Stegosaurus".
Yield: serves 8-10
- 8 lb. shell roast of beef
- Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 450°. Season beef (on the bone) with salt and pepper. Place fat side up in a roasting pan and cook for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 120° (beef will continue to cook to medium-rare as it rests). Transfer to a platter, reserving drippings for Yorkshire Pudding. Let beef rest for 30 minutes; serve with Horseradish Sauce.
