This just looks and sounds so amazing. I can't wait to try it.
I tried this but did not use the peppercorns. We don't like pepper very much, just a touch of flavor so I sprinkled a little on it instead. It was absolutely delicious !!!!!!!!
Fantastic!! this is exactly how I like my beef! thanks for a delicious recipe!
This sounds really tasty, I've made roast lamb with this exact herb paste, and it's really good, but have never tried it on beef. Will try it this holiday season.
