Weeknight Roast Beef with Dijon-Caper Sauce


Eye of Round...not the tenderest cut
but one of the least expensive
        To cook a roast beef during the week has always struck me as quite an accomplishment.  Then I discovered the Eye of Round roast at Costco.  Now I grant you this is not the most tender cut of beef—far from it.  But it is exactly the right size at around 3 lbs that makes it perfect for a weeknight dinner.    And it cooks very quickly taking under an hour from start to finish. To compensate for its lack of tenderness, this recipe gives you a great pan sauce that not only flavors the meat beautifully, it also works with sides really well.  I chose to serve Broccoli and Mashed Potatoes with it—two easy sides both of which could use a little flavor themselves.
