  • 1 red onion, cut into 16 wedges
  • 4 cups baby broccoli, trimmed (about 9 ounces)
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • salt and pepper
  • Marinade1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbs light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Creamy Gorgonzola Sauce1/4 cup reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 2 Tbs crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 Tbs minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Directions

  • Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons for basting. Place beef roast and remaining marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn roast to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Heat oven to 425°F. Remove roast from marinade; discard marinade. Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Place onion wedges around roast. Do not add water or cover. Roast in 425°F oven 30 to 40 minutes for medium rare; 40 to 45 minutes for medium doneness, basting with reserved 2 tablespoons marinade halfway through roasting time.
  • Remove roast when instant-read thermometer registers 135°F for medium rare; 150°F for medium. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 15 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium rare; 160°F for medium.)
  • Meanwhile prepare Creamy Gorgonzola Sauce. Combine all sauce ingredients in small bowl; mix well. Set aside.
  • Spray baby broccoli with nonstick cooking spray, tossing to coat. Place on metal baking sheet. Roast in 425°F oven 10 to 15 minutes or until crisp-tender and slightly browned. Toss onion wedges with baby broccoli. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.
  • Carve roast across the grain into thin slices. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Top beef with Creamy Gorgonzola Sauce. Serve with vegetables.

Substitution Tip: One 3 to 4 pound beef round tip roast may be substituted for tri-tip. Double the amount of ingredients for the red onions Broccolini, Marinade and Creamy Gorgonzola Sauce .
