DIRECTIONS

  • The day before cooking, trim excess fat from roast.
  • Clean and thinly slice the garlic.  Insert at about 2 inch intervals with a sharp knife into the roast, about 1/2″ deep.
  • With a meat injector, inject apple juice into the roast at various intervals in top,  sides and bottom.
  • Rub the roast with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper, oregano and salt.  Place the roast on a large sheet of plastic wrap and wrap tightly after seasoning.  Place in a plate or pan and refrigerate overnight.
  • The next day, remove the roast from the refrigerator at least 2 hours before cooking so that it is room temperature before placing in the oven.
  • Heat the oven to 500 degrees.  Unwrap the roast and place on a rack in a large roasting pan.  Place oven rack at lowest position.   Cook roast for 5 minutes per pound, no more!  Turn off oven (gas ovens, turn on low) and leave roast in oven with door closed for 2 hours.  Do not open the oven door at all during this time.
  • After 2 hours, remove roast from oven and let stand for 20 minutes.  Slice and serve.
  • 6 to 8 servings.
