Growing up, one of my favorite dishes was a baked roast, a.k.a. roast beast! Mom always served it with mashed potatoes, Lima beans and mac and cheese. I tacked on some healthy dishes to go with my roast.
On the grill, balsamic onions; and inside the roast and spinach. After Kurt’s stick to your bones risotto, I needed to go with a healthier side dish. I wanted to make a nice red wine sauce to go with the beef but instead made a horseradish sauce with Dijon mustard and sour cream.
With all the main work done I sat back and relaxed for 30 minutes. The roast wasn’t very large, about 2 lbs, and cooked between 30-45 minutes depending on wellness. I like mine rare so it was done closer to the 30 minute mark.
Ah, self control.
Since I did not have mac n cheese I had a small glass of wine instead. The meal was quick, easy and very filling. Only about 620 calories, without the wine. Not bad for a red meat dinner packed full of flavor!
Thanks for reading!
