Directions:
1. Let meat stand at room temperature for at least one hour before cooking.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Rub meat well with salt, sprinkle with pepper. Place meat fat side up in a shallow roasting pan. DO NOT COVER....DO NOT ADD WATER.
3. Put roast in oven, cook for just "ONE HOUR". Turn off heat, but DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR AT ANY TIME UNTIL READY TO SERVE.
4. Regardless of the length of time the meat has been in the oven - 30 to 40 minutes before serving, TURN ON OVEN AGAIN. Reset temperature controls to 375 cook meat for those remaining 30 to 40 minutes.
5. Now open oven door, remove roast to a serving platter. Garnish with fresh parsley.

The meat will be very brown and crisp on the out side. Carve thin slices...you'll find the roast is beautifully pink all the way through. It really does work. The meat turns out medium rare.
