  • Rub herb mixture all over roast and transfer to a roasting pan.
  • Cook roast at 425˚F for 15 minutes, then lower temperature to 325˚F and continue cooking for about 45 minutes (for medium-rare, 135˚F but remove from oven at 130˚F) or about 1 hour(for medium, 145˚F but remove from oven at 140˚F).
  • Remove roast from oven and loosely cover with foil for about 20 minutes.


  • Place butter into a small saucepan and melt together over medium heat.
  • Add garlic and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add flour and whisk together until smooth.
  • Whisk in mustard and season with salt and pepper.
