Weight Watchers Herb Crusted Pot Roast Recipe
- 4 pounds lean whole beef ribs (Kosher beef if you are preparing for Hanukkah)
- 1 1/2 tsp table salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 2 medium garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup
- Dijon mustard
- 2 tbsp reduced-calorie mayonnaise
- 1 1/2 tsp horseradish sauce
- 1/4 cup parsley
- 2 tbsp thyme

Preheat oven to 375°F. Season roast with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, combine garlic, mustard, mayonnaise and horseradish. In another small bowl, combine parsley, thyme, dill and 1 tablespoon of mustard mixture.
Place meat, rib-bone down, in a roasting pan; coat top with remaining mustard mixture and cook meat until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of roast registers 110°F. Coat roast with remaining mustard mixture and press herb mixture onto mustard with your hands.
Continue cooking roast until a thermometer inserted in center of meat registers 140°F for medium, or longer until desired degree of done-ness. Cover loosely with foil and then let stand 20 to 30 minutes before carving into 12 thick slices.
