Roast Prime Rib Au Poivre

White, black, green and pink peppercorns add wonderful flavor to this very special prime rib. If possible, search out a butcher who carries dry-aged beef-it's more tender, flavorful and juicy than the non-aged variety. A full-bodied California Cabernet Sauvignon or French Bordeaux is the perfect wine to serve. As for vegetables, mix butter and tarragon with cooked baby carrots and green beans for a delicious accompaniment.
