Garlic-Rosemary Roast Beef with Horseradish Sauce

Garlic-Rosemary Roast Beef with Horseradish Sauce

1 Review
From: Diabetic Living Magazine, Winter 2019

The eye of round is a lean, boneless cut of beef that's less expensive than a tenderloin or rib roast but just as delicious. It's best served medium-rare—when cooked to higher temperatures it can become tough. Topping it with a finger-licking-good horseradish sauce makes this roast beef holiday-worthy.

  • 3 pounds boneless beef eye of round roast
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 shallot, minced ( ¼ cup)
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, plus 1 clove grated, divided
  • 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Season roast with ¾ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet (see Tip) over medium-high heat. Add the roast and cook, turning every few minutes, until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Combine butter, shallot, rosemary, and minced garlic; spread on top of the roast. Transfer the pan to the oven. Roast until a thermometer inserted in the center of the meat registers 125-130°F for medium-rare, 35 to 40 minutes. Transfer the roast to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk grated garlic, yogurt, horseradish, mustard, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Season with the remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Slice the beef thinly and serve with the sauce.
  • Tip: If you don't have a large ovenproof skillet, you can brown the roast in a large skillet and transfer it to a roasting pan for Step 3.
  • To make ahead: Season roast with salt and pepper; refrigerate for up to 1 day. Prepare butter mixture (Step 3) and sauce (Step 4) and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
