  • Position the racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 450°. Place the roast on a foil-lined baking sheet. Rub with the oil; season generously with the salt and pepper. Arrange half of the thyme sprigs under the roast and tuck the remaining sprigs under the twine all over the roast.

  • Roast on the lower rack until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 125° for medium-rare, 40 to 45 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes. 

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the sour cream, horseradish cream, heavy cream, oregano, and lemon juice; season. Serve with the roast.
