Ingredients• 2-3 pounds roast or eye round cut, fat trimmed • 3-4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced • olive oil, for brushing • kosher salt, to taste • fresh cracked pepper, to taste • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, chopped
Allow the roast to sit, covered, until it reaches room temperature, about 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Using a sharp knife, pierce the roast several times, making each piercing about 1/2-inch deep and set about 1-inch apart.
Add a sliver of the garlic into each piercing, pushing it in completely. Doing so will infuse the meat more fully with the garlic flavor.
Brush the roast with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and rosemary.
Place a meat thermometer into the center of the roast and place the roast in a roasting pan.
Roast until the thermometer reads 130 degrees F for rare, 140 degrees F for medium-rare, 150 degrees F for medium, and 155-160 degrees F for well done, about 1 hour-1 hour 15 minutes.
Remove the roast from the oven and let it rest for about 10-20 minutes.
Slice thin and serve.
