Cranberries and red wine give the sauce a rosie hue that's the perfect pairing with medium-rare roast beef and is pretty to take to the table.

 2 tbsp (30 mL) Worcestershire sauce
 2 tsp (10 mL) steak spice
 1 tsp (5 mL) herbes de Provence seasoning

Rub roast all over with Worcestershire sauce and seasonings.


Place bones down, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert oven-safe meat thermometer into centre of roast. Roast, uncovered, in 450°F (230°C) oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 275°F (140°C); roast until thermometer reads 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare, about 4-1/2 hours.
