Garlic-Mustard Rib Roast

This is one of my favorite ways to prepare a roast because it turns out so tender and flavorful. My husband and our six children just love it!

    I just made this for Christmas dinner and everyone loved it! So simple, too! Add this to your "simple but looks and tastes like gourmet" file. The only change I would make is perhaps increasing the broth mixture, as most of it evaporated during the roasting, and I only got to baste the roast once or twice.
