Roast Rib of Beef with Mustard Crust

Grab the glory with my mustard-rubbed beef rib – a magnificent non-traditional meal on Christmas day.

With something as robust as mustard-rubbed beef, you need a wine that really packs in the flavour. I’d suggest Waitrose Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2006 – full-bodied, fruity, and with a hint of spice to complement that mustard. A real (thoroughbred) dark horse!
