Preheat oven to 200ºC. Brush the beef roast and garlic bulbs lightly with oil. Combine the crushed peppercorns and salt and then rub it over the beef.
Place the beef on a rack in a roasting dish and add the garlic bulbs. Add a little water to the roasting dish (about ½ cup). Roast for 60 minutes for rare, 75 minutes for medium and 90 minutes for well done. For ease and accuracy use a meat thermometer.
Remove the beef roast, cover loosely with foil and rest it for 20 minutes before carving. Squeeze the garlic out of its skin. Serve the beef roast with garlic, roasted carrots and parsnips.
