1 beef Ribeye Roast boneless, small end (about 4-6 lb.)
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp. coarse grind black pepper
2 medium heads garlic
2 tsp. olive oil
1 c. reduced-sodium beef broth
2 Tbsp. dry sherry
1/2 c. half-and-half
1/4 tsp. salt
chopped fresh parsley


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine 1 Tbsp. parsley and pepper in small bowl. Press evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast.

2. Place roast, fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of beef, not resting in fat. Do not add water or cover. Cut about 1/4-in. off top of each garlic head, exposing cloves. Remove outer papery skin, leaving head intact. Place in center of 12-in. square heavy-duty aluminum foil; drizzle each with 1 tsp. oil. Bring two opposite sides of foil over garlic; seal with double fold. Fold in open ends to seal. Place alongside roast in pan. Roast beef in 350°F oven 1-3/4 to 2 hr. for medium rare; 2 to 2-1/2 for medium doneness. Roast garlic 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hr. or until very soft and golden brown; set aside.

3. Remove roast when meat thermometer registers 135°F for medium rare; 150°F for medium. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 15-20 min. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium rare; 160°F for medium.)

4. Meanwhile, squeeze garlic cloves from skins into small bowl; mash with back of spoon. Combine garlic, broth, sherry and salt in medium saucepan; bring to boil. Cook 10-11 min. or until reduced by half. Add half-and-half; reduce heat and bring to a gentle boil. Continue cooking 4-6 min. or until sauce is reduced to 1 c., stirring occasionally. Keep warm.

5. Carve roast into slices; serve with sauce. Garnish with additional parsley, as desired.
