Beef Roast with Horseradish Blue Cheese Sauce

This roast is good enough for Christmas dinner or a special dinner party. A buttery-smooth tenderloin or lean sirloin roast is best, but the low-fat and flavorful horseradish sauce will dress up any beef roast. I personally could just eat the sauce with a spoon, but I'm crazy about blue cheese in general. Maybe I should just say that the roast is optional. Go for the sauce!

The original recipe came from Weight Watchers, so you know it's a guilt-free and scrumptious meal.


2-3 pound beef tenderloin or sirloin roast
2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
2 tbsp prepared horseradish
1 tsp sweet paprika
1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice


Heat oil in a frying pan. Sprinkle the meat with salt and pepper, then brown it on all sides. Heat the oven to 275 degrees and roast the meat until it reaches 130 degrees on a meat thermometer (60 to 90 minutes, depending on the weight). Remove it from the oven, cover it with foil, and allow it to sit for 5 minutes before carving.

While the meat is roasting, stir together the rest of the ingredients and allow it to chill until ready to serve. We like to warm up the blue cheese sauce before passing it with the meat.

Serves 6-8 4-oz servings. If you follow Weight Watchers, these are 8 points per serving with 2 tbsp sauce.
