  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 275 ºF (140 ºC). Lightly spray 9 x 9-inch (22 x 22 cm) metal roasting pan with canola oil cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Step 2

    Pat roast dry. Cover entire roast with ground black pepper and shake off excess. Place in prepared pan and roast in preheated oven for 1 1/4-1 3/4 hours or until internal temperature registers 140 ºF (60 ºC) with instant-read thermometer. Remove from oven and tent loosely with foil.

    During last 30 minutes of cooking, prepare sauce. In medium saucepan, bring beef broth and water to a boil. Remove from heat and add mushrooms, covering them well with broth mixture. Let set at room temperature for 30 minutes to soften. Drain mushrooms, reserving broth. Coarsely chop mushrooms.
  4. Step 4

    In large skillet, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook for 1-2 minutes or until soft; do not brown.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until thickened.
