Directions:
"Stand roast upright in roasting pan (at least 3 ribs), Salt and
paprika to taste. Place in pre-heated oven at 325. Roast,
basting frequently--be sure to put a good piece of suet for
the pan to make plenty of drippings-- for 12-18 minutes per
pound. We all liked it very rare except for the end pieces.

Serve with Yorkshire pudding and whatever else suits you.
We used to have either buttered parsley potatoes or
mashed, which my father mashed beautifully. There was
always a green vegetable and either a tossed salad or relish
tray.

Generally, there was home-made apple or cherry pie for
dessert. Rilla, who worked for my Grandmother Johnson,
was a fine cook."
