For the second episode of Savannah Guthrie's new TODAY All Day series, Starting from Scratch, Elizabeth Heiskell joins Savannah in the kitchen to teach her the basics of steak cooking. In the episode, they prepare steakhouse-style filet mignon, grilled marinated skirt steak and simply (but perfectly) roasted vegetables on the side. Then, on the show Wednesday, they make yet another preparation of beef: a comforting pot roast with horseradish cream.

Follow this recipe and you're sure to achieve true steakhouse results in your home kitchen. Finishing the filet with butter, rosemary and garlic really takes this steak to the next level.

Pot Roast with Horseradish Cream

This recipe is great because you can throw these few ingredients together before work and come home to a completed dinner your family will love. This roast is fabulous on its own. It hardly needs more than a generous side of garlic mashed potatoes and roasted root vegetables. But magic happens when you pile this roast on a tasted garlic buttered French baguette with broiled provolone cheese and horseradish sauce. Wow, that is one heck of a sandwich!
