Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F.
Combine the salt, pepper and dried oregano together, then rub it into the meat on all sides.
Place the beef onto a roasting rack in a shallow baking pan.
Roast for 20-25 minutes for medium rare, 30-45 minutes if you prefer it less pink.
Remove the meat from the oven, set on a cutting board and tent with foil for 15 minutes. Reserve the beef juices from the baking pan.

Step 2

Pour the beef juices, beef broth and water into a saucepan, and heat on the stovetop over medium-high.
Add the sliced onion, and cook for about 5 minutes, until softened and golden. Taste, and adjust for seasoning.
Remove the onions with a slotted spoon, and set aside.

Step 3

Once the meat has rested for 15 minutes, slice it very thinly.

Step 4

Spread each buttered and toasted French roll with a bit of horseradish sauce. Layer with the meat and onions, and serve with the jus on the side.
