Roast Beef with a Mushroom Medley
Serves: 4
  • For the roast:
  • One 2-pound eye round beef roast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • For the mushroom medley:
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 package (12 ounces) Trader Joe's frozen Mushroom Medley*
  • ¼ cup red wine
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a rack with nonstick spray and place in a roasting pan. Season the beef with the salt and pepper. Roast beef for 1 hour, or until it reaches your desired doneness. Transfer roast to a cutting board and let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. When roast is resting, prepare mushrooms. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Saute the onion until softened. Add the garlic and frozen bag of mushrooms. Saute, stirring constantly, for another 5 minutes. Stir in the wine and thyme and cook, stirring constantly, until the mushrooms are softened, about 5-6 minutes. Slice the beef and serve with some mushrooms spooned over the top. Serve immediately. Serves 6-8.
  3. *If you can't find the bag of mushroom medley at your Trader Joe's, or you don't have a Trader Joe's nearby, you can substitute about 3 cups of fresh mushrooms, preferably a mix of shiitake, cremini, and porcini, or your favorites.
