Dijon and Thyme Eye Round Roast

This is a nice roast for company. You can be with your guests while the roast is in the oven and filling the house with a wonderful aroma. The roast is so simple and quick to impress.

2 1/2 lb. eye round roast
3 Tbsp, dijon mustard
1 package of fresh thyme, just leaves
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. black pepper

Preheat oven to 325.Remove thyme leaves from stems by holding the top of a sprig and stripping the leaves downward. Rub dijon, salt and pepper over entire roast. Sprinkle thyme leaves over the top and sides. Place in oven for 20 min. per pound of roast. It usually takes 45 min. for medium rare.
