Why not trying slicing our tender Presto Pesto Roast and serving it as an open-faced sandwich? Pair it with some fresh green beans or grilled mixed veggies and "Presto!" - you'll be in and out of the kitchen in a flash!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (about 2 ounces), reconstituted
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (2-1/2-pound) beef eye of round roast

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray.*

  2. In a food processor, process the basil, oil, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, salt, and pepper until smooth.

  3. Place the roast in the pan; spread the tomato-pesto mixture over the entire roast.

  4. Cook the roast for 50 to 60 minutes, or until it reaches the desired doneness.

  5. Remove the roast to a cutting board. Slice evenly then spoon pan juices over each serving.



  • To make this a gluten-free recipe, use nonstick cooking spray with no flour added.
  • Why not try slicing the meat and serving it as an open-faced sandwich? Pair it with some fresh green beans or grilled mixed veggies and "Presto!"
