4-pound rib roast, with 2 ribs, preferably aged 24 days

Kosher salt

Horseradish Cream, recipe follows

Horseradish Cream

1/4 cup freshly grated horseradish

1/4 cup creme fraiche

1/2 lemon, juiced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Let the beef sit at room temperature for about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Set a large heavy skillet over high heat so it's smoking hot. Season the beef liberally with salt and sear on all sides. Transfer the beef to a rack set inside a roasting pan. Roast to medium rare; an instant read thermometer should read 145 degrees F when inserted into the deepest part. Let the roast rest before carving.
  4. Carve and serve with Horseradish Cream.
