- Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise and horseradish in a small bowl. Spread a thin layer over each slice of roast beef. Place an asparagus stalk at one end of each beef slice and roll tightly. Serve at once, or cover tightly and refrigerate to serve within 1 day. Bring to room temperature for 30 minutes before serving. Yields 4 rolls per serving.
