Ingredients
  • 1 beef eye round roast (2 to 3 pounds)
  • 4 cups prepared mashed potatoes, warmed
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Walnut Crust:
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Directions
  • Heat oven to 325° F. Combine Walnut Crust ingredients; press evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast.
  • Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of beef. Do not add water or cover. Roast in 325°F oven 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours for medium rare doneness. (Do not overcook.)
  • Remove roast when meat thermometer registers 135°F. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145° F for medium rare.)
  • Meanwhile combine mashed potatoes and cheese in large bowl; keep warm.
  • Carve beef roast into thin slices; season with salt and pepper as desired. Serve with mashed potatoes.


Cook's Tip: Any type of prepared mashed potatoes may be used in this recipe: instant, refrigerated, frozen or homemade.
