- 3 lb Cross Rib Roast
- Garlic Herb Rub (Recipe from The Grassfed Gourmet by Shannon Hayes)
Garlic Herb Rub recipe:
- 1 tbsp dried thyme
- 1 tbsp dried rosemary
- 2 tbsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp ground fennel (optional)
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 1/2 tbsp sea salt
- 2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 450.
Rub roast with garlic herb mix.
Cook roast for 15-20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 until meat thermometer reads 130 (rare) to 140 (medium), roasting time is approximately 20 minutes per pound. Remove from oven, tent and let stand for 15-25 minutes. Cut thin slices to serve. Serve with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots and onions.
Tip: I always save my roast drippings to make gravy (de-glaze and make in the same roaster, no need for extra dishes!). I also keep the the strained potato water and add as needed instead of water or broth. Delish!
