After purchasing a steer at a local 4-H fair, we were looking for tasty new beef recipes. A blend of seasonings makes this tender cut of meat even more succulent.—Darlene King, Steven, Saskatchewan

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 bone-in beef rib roast (8 to 10 pounds)
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro


  1. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, salt, cumin and cayenne. Set aside 2 teaspoons for salsa. Rub the remaining seasoning mixture over roast. Place roast fat side up in a shallow roasting pan.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness ((for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Transfer to serving platter. Let stand for 15 minutes before carving.
  3. For salsa, combine the beans, tomatoes, onion, cilantro and reserved seasoning mixture in a bowl. Serve with roast. Yield: 12-16 servings.
