  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a small dish, mix together the lemon-pepper seasoning, paprika, garlic salt, rosemary and cayenne pepper. Rub over the entire roast.
  3. Place the roast with the fat side up on a roasting rack set inside a shallow roasting pan.
  4. Bake for 1 hour and 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the roast reaches your desired degree of doneness, or at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C) for medium-rare. Medium is recommended: 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Let the roast rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving into thin slices.

My kitchen smelled heavenly while this was roasting, and the flavor did not disappoint! We had company over and everybody loved it! The only thing I did a little differently was that I added a little oil to the dry rub and made it a paste. I also found that it took significantly longer than 1 hour 40 minutes to reach the proper internal temperature, but it was worth the wait!

I made this for my in-laws for Christmas Eve dinner. It was fantastic. The only thing I did differently, was coat the outside of the roast with Worstershire Sauce, so the rub had something to stick on.



Absolutely wonderful and as Mina stated in the intro. I sprayed a very light coating of olive oil before applying the rub and let the meat rest about a half hour before putting it in the oven.
