DIRECTIONS

  • Sprinkle salt over roast. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for 12 hours. Remove roast from refrigerator, unwrap, place on a wire rack in a shallow pan, cover and let sit until it reaches room temperature. Discard wrap.
  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.
  • Prepare another shallow pan with a wire rack in it. Place in oven to heat.
  • Pat the roast dry, rub 1 T oil evenly over the meat. Pepper roast.
  • In a heavy pan, cast iron is best, place remaining T of oil. Heat almost to smoke.
  • With kitchen tongs, place the roast into hot pan. Sear on each side for 3-4 minutes each.
  • Remove pan and roast from heat.
  • Place roast on warmed rack in preheated oven.
  • Use a probe thermometer to monitor temperature.
  • You want to try to keep the internal temperature of the roast below 122 degrees. Adjust oven temperature as needed, or open door briefly, to keep that temperature down.
  • For a medium rare roast, cook to 115, remove from oven. Turn oven off. (A 5 pound roast will take around 2 hours in my oven to reach 115 degrees.) Leave roast in oven until thermometer reaches 130 F for medium rare. This will take 30 to 50 minutes longer.
  • If your roast is not coming up to temperature, turn the oven back on to 225 for 5 minutes, turn it off and finish.
  • When roast is at 130 F, transfer to cutting board and let rest 15 minutes.
  • Slice and serve.
