"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

5 3/4 lbs. boneless rib-eye roast (with fat), tied, if desired

Directions:
Preheat oven to 500. Season beef with salt and pepper. Place in a large roasting pan; roast until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 325. Place shallots around beef; roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of beef registers 130. for medium-rare, 1 to 1 1/4 hours more, turning shallots with tongs after about 30 minutes.
Transfer beef to a platter; tent loosely with foil. Transfer shallots to a shallow bowl (continue cooking if not golden brown). Toss with sugar and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Cover with foil to keep warm.
Pour off fat from pan. Add wine; cook over medium heat until syrupy, scraping bottom of pan, 2 to 4 minutes. Add 2 c. water; cook until reduced by half, 4 to 8 minutes. Strain into a small bowl; whisk in mustard and any accumulated juices from beef. Season with salt and pepper; serve with beef and shallots
