Roast New York Strip Loin With Garlic-Herb Crust

INGREDIENTS

    • 4 garlic cloves
    • 8 fresh sage leaves
    • 4 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
    • 4 teaspoons olive oil
    • 4 teaspoons salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
    • 1 4- to 5-pound boneless beef loin New York strip roast, fat trimmed to 1/4 inch

PREPARATION

    1. With machine running, drop garlic into processor; blend until finely chopped. Add sage, thyme, oil, salt and pepper; process until paste forms.
    2. Pat meat dry with paper towels. Rub meat all over with herb paste. Cover; chill at least 3 hours. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep refrigerated.)
    3. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place meat, fat side up, on rack in roasting pan. Roast meat 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Roast meat until instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of meat registers 130°F for medium-rare, about 35 minutes (or 140°F for medium, about 40 minutes). Remove from oven; let stand 20 minutes. Cut crosswise into 1/3-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices on platter.
