How to Make Herb Crusted Roast Beef:
- Set roast out on counter for 2 hours before cooking.
- Drizzle with olive oil.
- Mix herb rub together in a bowl: onion flakes, Italian seasonings, garlic, kosher salt and dry mustard.
- Rub herb mixture into meat on all sides.
- For Grilling: Prepare grill to a 300° fire.
- Place roast over flame and sear on both sides, about 10 minutes.
- Move roast to indirect heat and cook about 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 135° to 140°.
- Remove from grill and place on a cutting board and tent with foil for 20 minutes before slicing.
- For Oven Roasting: Preheat oven to 375°.
- Place a roasting rack in a roasting pan - a wire rack on a cookie sheet will work also if you don't have a roasting pan.
- Cook roast for about 20 minutes or until it starts to brown. Reduce temperature to 300° and continue to cook about 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 135° to 140°.
- Remove from oven and tent with foil for 20 minutes before slicing.
Roasts are often different sizes, you may need to adjust your cooking time. A long, narrow roast will cook faster, while a thick and wide roast will need a little more cooking time. Just keep an eye on the internal temperature with a digital thermometer.
