Herb Crusted Rib Eye Roast

The combination of sour cream, horseradish, herbs, garlic and breadcrumbs make this a fabulous roast. Simple enough to make as a weeknight dinner served with vegetables or elegant enough to serve for a special occasion. I found this recipe in an old Everyday Food magazine and modified it to make it lighter. I will definitely be making this again when I am craving beef. I had this with a salad and fresh vegetables to keep the points down.
