    Bake uncovered 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Bake 30 to 40 minutes longer or until of desired doneness. Cover; let stand 15 minutes before slicing. Garnish with tarragon sprigs.

  • Starting the beef at a high temperature gives it a nice crust. Thinly slice beef for the best texture. Leftovers make great sandwiches.
