Source: Better Homes and Gardens
An Elegant Replacement For Thanksgiving Turkey
1 2-pound beef eye of round roast
1/4 cup dry white wine
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, finely chopped (3 cups)
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed or fennel seed, crushed
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon reduced-calorie mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup beef broth
1. Trim excess fat from roast. Then, cut 8 evenly spaced crosswise slits or
pockets in roast, making each 3 inches deep. Place roast in a plastic bag set in
a deep bowl. Pour wine over roast. Seal bag. Marinate roast in the refrigerator
for 6 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
2. For filling, in medium saucepan combine mushrooms, water, dill weed or fennel
seed, and salt. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 15 minutes or until liquid
is evaporated. Cool. Stir in onion and mayonnaise or salad dressing.
3. Remove roast from bag, discarding marinade. Spoon filling into pockets in
roast. Place roast in a shallow roasting pan. Roast in a 325 degree F oven for
1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of
meat registers 140 degrees F. Remove from oven. Keep warm.
4. For sauce, in a small saucepan stir together yogurt, flour, and pepper. Stir
in beef broth. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Then,
cook and stir for 1 minute more. To serve, slice meat between filled pockets.
Serve with sauce.
