Roast, uncovered, 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until thermometer registers 135 for medium rare or 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until thermometer registers 150 for medium. If desired, serve with Horseradish-Peppercorn Cream: In a chilled bowl, beat whipping cream just until soft peaks form. Fold in horseradish and Dijon-style mustard. If not using immediately, cover and store horseradish mixture in the refrigerator up to 6 hours. Sprinkle each serving of cream with cracked peppercorns.
