Oh my, it’s been a while since I participated in Cooking Thursday! Today I’m sharing my favorite roast beef recipe. I often make a roast in the Crock Pot, just because the timing often works better for me. But when I have the opportunity, this is the one I think is the best! Sorry the photo isn’t the greatest, but I wanted to get to eating and not spend time on food styling 😉
4-5 lb. beef roast
1 tsp. crushed fennel seed
1 tsp. crushed dried rosemary
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. thyme
1 medium onion, sliced
Combine the dried herbs in a small bowl. Rub the herbs all over the roast. Place in a roasting pan and cover the top with sliced onions. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 2-2.5 hours until meat reaches desired temperature. Discard onions and let the meat rest before carving.

1 c. sour cream
1/4 c. creamy horseradish
2 Tbsp. chives (I usually used dried, but you can also use fresh)
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve with the roast.
