This year I wanted to try something new for New Years Eve, so when I saw this awesome roast on sale at our local grocery store I just had to make it! It’s a New York roast, and it’s so tender and delicious!
In this case, any roast will NOT do. Make sure you get a good cut of meat. Start by trimming the fat all around the roast to 1/4 inch thickness for the best flavor. It makes a really good crust on the meat that is to DIE for! My friends were loving it, and so was I.
The other thing that made it delicious was the yummy herbs we spread all over it. You could use whatever you want, but we went for a mix of rosemary, garlic, sea salt, pepper, and onion powder.
And finally, let your roast come to room temperature before you pop it in the oven. It will be a LOT more juicy that way because the high heat won’t make it seize up the way a cold roast would.
