Creamy Herb Sauce:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


1 cup beef broth
Nonstick cooking spray
2 teaspoons dried crushed rosemary
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
One 5-pound boneless top loin roast or eye of round roast, trimmed
3 tablespoons olive oil
Fresh rosemary, as garnish, optional





For the creamy herb sauce: In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, rosemary and mustard and mix well. Cover and chill for up to 3 days.

For the roast: Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil. Pour the beef broth into the roasting pan. Place the rack over the broth, and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine the rosemary, salt and pepper. Rub the mixture evenly over the roast.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the roast and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place the roast on the prepared rack in the roasting pan. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours (depending on the shape of the roast), or until a meat thermometer inserted in the center of the roast reads 125 degrees F.

Remove from the oven and let stand for 20 minutes before slicing. Serve with the creamy herb sauce and garnish with rosemary if desired.

This was amazing! I used a pork sirloin roast instead of the roast it called for and instead of Dijon mustard, I used horse radish sauce. Also I cooked it at 350 for about 1 1/2. It was delish!!

Made this for Christmas. Half the size, higher temp, longer time, still raw. I think I tried cooking this sucker 3 times before it came out edible. Going to attempt it again tonight. I realky wush there was a slow cooker alternative to the roasting pan method...

We did a 5lb - followed everything instruction - bringing the roast to 125 was way to rare and this was a disaster - this needed to cook much longer with a temp around 165 to be ready - sorry - this one did not work !! The sauce was awesome but the meat was not - slow cooked for longer to get the temp up so it would have been tender and still not over cooked... pk

Loved the Deen Family Christmas show that aired yesterday. My question is concerning the biscuits that were featured on the side table. Would love to know what the recipe is for them. They looked so light and flaky. Thank you!
