Pack this stunning beef roast with a savory stuffing, which keeps the meat juicy and makes a fine accompaniment on the plate.



  • 1 pound applewood-smoked bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2' pieces
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 2 1/2 cups cooked (or three 10-oz. bags frozen, thawed) spinach, squeezed dry, chopped
  • 1/4 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 2 cups coarse fresh breadcrumbs made from day-old white bread
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped scallions
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, preferably freshly grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs, whisked to blend


  • 1 5-bone standing beef rib-eye roast (10–13 lb.), chine bone removed, fat trimmed to 1/4' thick
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh thyme

Recipe Preparation


  • Pulse bacon several times in a food processor to coarsely chop. Scrape bacon into a large skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring often, until brown but not crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Pour off and reserve 2 Tbsp. bacon drippings for another use. Return pan to medium heat. Add celery, shallots, and garlic; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in spinach and crème fraîche; cook, stirring occasionally, 2–3 minutes longer. Scrape mixture into a medium bowl.

  • Stir breadcrumbs, scallions, sage, thyme, and nutmeg into stuffing mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover with plastic and refrigerate, Stir in eggs. Spread stuffing out on a rimmed baking sheet; cover with plastic wrap and chill until stuffing is firm, about 1 hour.


  • Let meat stand at room temperature for 4 hours.

  • Arrange a rack in lower third of oven and preheat to 450°. Set a V-shaped rack inside a large roasting pan. Place roast on a work surface with bones standing straight up. Using a knife, cut along bones so only 1" of meat is attached at base of bones.

  • Season roast (including the bones) generously with salt and pepper, rub with oil, and sprinkle with thyme. Place roast, bones facing up, in prepared pan; wrap bone tips in foil to prevent burning.

  • Pull bones away from meat to create a 3–4"-wide pocket at the top. Lightly pack stuffing into pocket. Starting at one end, tie kitchen twine horizontally around bones to keep them in place and secure stuffing. Tie the roast vertically between each bone.

  • Roast beef for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and continue roasting for 3 hours–beginning to probe center of roast at the 2-hour mark–until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of roast registers 110°–115° for rare and 120°–125° for medium-rare.

  • Transfer roast to a carving board; tent loosely with foil. Let rest for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour. Remove twine.

  • Carving option 1: Cut between ribs to make 5 large bone-in steaks to share.

  • Carving option 2: Spoon stuffing into a serving bowl. Slice off rib rack by cutting through strip of meat at base of bones. Slice between bones and transfer ribs to a platter. Place meat on a work surface; cut into 1/4–1/2"-thick slices. Transfer slices to platter with ribs and serve with small spoonfuls of stuffing on the side.

Served for Christmas Eve and people had 4 helpings, so delicious. I brushed the roast with fish sauce and salted it 3 days before, to help tenderize and add umami to the beef. Served with a quick wine, beef bone broth and mushroom sauce reduction and horseradish cream sauce. This is a must make, impress your guests showstopper. Thanks Bon Appetit!AnonymousMichigan12/24/19Did I miss something? Where do I add the bacon into the stuffing? Sure wish you'd have someone review your recipes before you post them.
