Eye-of-Round with Horseradish Cream

Eye-of-Round with Horseradish Cream

Yes, the 20-minute cook time is correct for this recipe. By baking at a high temperature and keeping the oven door closed 2 hours, this roast cooks up extra tender and flavorful. Don't open the oven door at any time during the 2 hours, or you will lose heat; then the roast will not get to the proper temperature. If the meat has not reached 145° when you check it, put it back in the oven and bake at 325° until it reaches at least 145°.

  • Yield: 16 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces meat and 1 tablespoon cream)


  • 1 none (8-ounce) package 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup light butter, melted
  • 1 none (4-pound) eye-of-round roast
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


1. Combine cream cheese, horseradish, and mustard; stir until smooth. Cover and chill.

2. Combine wine and butter in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add roast. Seal and chill at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours, turning occasionally.

3. Preheat oven to 500°.

4. Remove roast from marinade, discarding marinade. Place roast in a 13 x 9-inch pan lined with heavy-duty foil. Combine salt and pepper, and rub over surface of roast.

5. Bake, uncovered, at 500° for 20 to 30 minutes. Turn oven off. Do not open oven door for 2 hours. Meat thermometer should register 145° (medium-rare) to 160° (medium). Thinly slice meat, reserving pan juices. Serve meat with pan juices and horseradish cream.
