  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat or regular dairy sour cream

Add shallots and remaining 1 tablespoon thyme. Cook and stir 4 to 5 minutes or until shallots are tender and begin to turn golden. Remove from heat; stir into mustard mixture. Season with salt, as desired.

  4. Remove roast when meat thermometer registers 135°F for medium rare. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 20 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium rare.)

  5. Carve roast into thin slices. Season with salt, as desired. Serve with mustard mixture.
