Roast New York Strip Loin With Garlic-Herb Crust

READY IN: 4hrs 45mins
Recipe by enigmused

This is what I cook when I want to pull out all the stops and impress people. It's easy but tastes like something you'd get at a 5-star restaurant. I double all the ingredients for added flavor, sometimes tripling the garlic. From Bon Appetit, December 2000.

Use this recipe with confidence! Made this 3 times and really enjoy the flavors. The first two times I used strip loins and this last time I used a rib-eye loin. Both turned out wonderfully. On all three occasions, I did have to cook about 10 minutes longer than the recipe calls for. Possibly an error with my oven temperature. This last time I also substituted marjoram for thyme as I was out. Think I liked it better.
