Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place garlic in a mortar, along with 1/4 cup rosemary leaves, anchovy, and lemon zest; mash together with a pestle. Add olive oil and rub mixture all over beef. Place onions, carrots, and rosemary sprigs in the bottom of a large roasting pan and season with salt and pepper; place beef on top of vegetables. Roast for 2 1/2 hours or continue roasting until meat has reached desired degree of doneness. Transfer beef to a platter and let stand 30 minutes.

  • Drain all but about 1 tablespoon fat from roasting pan. Place roasting pan over medium heat and add flour and 1/2 cup water. Using a potato masher, mash carrots and onions into the flour and water, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan as you mash. Strain gravy through a fine mesh sieve set over a bowl; discard solids.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together marjoram, creme fraiche, and lemon juice. Add horseradish; season with salt and pepper. Slice beef and serve with roasted beets and potatoes, gravy, and creme fraiche.
