By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 10


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons dried crushed rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (5 lb) or eye of round roast, trimmed boneless top loin roast


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 °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 °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.
