For Worcestershire Dressing: In heavy-bottomed pot, heat 3 Tbsp. of oil over low heat.

Remove from heat; add Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, sugar and thyme, stirring to dissolve caramelized juices on bottom of pot. Transfer to blender jar; blend until smooth. With motor running, slowly add remaining oil, blending until emulsified.

Season with salt and pepper; drizzle with olive oil. Roast in 350°F oven, turning onions over with spatula after 15 minutes, for about 30 minutes or until onions are soft and caramelized.

For each serving, to order: Season 1 beef roast with salt and pepper. In sautè pan, heat oil and sear beef on all sides.
