I've discovered a variety of small roasts that work well for two, without creating leftovers for the rest of the week. This prime rib is perfect for a holiday meal when company isn't coming. The portion for each is generous, and the flavor is unsurpassed.

For Christmas dinner or other special occasions, this beef rib roast makes an elegant entree. I just coat the beef with a dry rub to spark the flavor, then stick it in the oven. It comes out perfect every time!
Just a whiff of this pot roast reminds me of my grandmother—she's been making this family favorite for over 40 years. For variety, try it with a whole chicken, or add potatoes, carrots and onions or Chinese vegetables to the pot.
My three grown children and grandkids enjoy this tempting tenderloin. Leftovers make wonderful sandwiches with oven-fresh bread and Dijon mustard. I sometimes substitute a marinated eye of round roast...and it turns out fine.
I enjoy a good pot roast, but I was tired of the same old thing...so I started experimenting. Cooking the beef in horseradish sauce gives it a tangy flavor. Even my 6 and 3-year-olds love this roast with its tender veggies and gravy.
My mother often made pot roasts, and the aroma wafting through the house made our mouths water. Through the years, I've tried different variations, but this is a favorite.—Lenore Rein, Kelliher, Saskatchewan
This recipe was given to me by my mother's friend when I was a newlywed. I was in a panic over what to serve to guests, and she suggested this. It was a big hit, and I've continued serving it for the past 40 years.
"This is by far the simplest way to make roast beef and gravy," assures Abby Metzger of Larchwood, Iowa. "On busy days, I can put this main dish in the slow cooker and forget about it. My family likes it with mashed potatoes and fruit salad."
