Ingredients:  
1 4-5 lbs. top loin roast (beef)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic (minced)
1 1/2 teaspoons leaf thyme (dried)
1 1/2 teaspoons leaf sage (dried)
1/2 teaspoon rosemary (dried, crumbled)
2 teaspoons sea salt

Dollop of dry sherry

Directions:
Directions:
Place the roast, fat side up, on a rack in a roasting pan. Combine the olive oil, garlic, thyme, sage, rosemary, salt and pepper; stir to blend. Rub all over the roast. Let sit on the counter for 1 hour to marinate and come up to room temperature. Heat oven to 450. Roast the beef for 15 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 350 and roast for about 35 to 45 minutes longer or to 125 to 130 (for medium rare) on an instant-read thermometer. Cover with foil and let the roast rest for 15 minutes before slicing.

Pan Gravy: Strain the pan drippings into a saucepan. Add two cups of beef broth and bring to a boil. In a mason jar, add 4 tablespoons of flour to a 1/2 cup of beef broth and shake vigorously. Pour the flour mixture into the sauce pan and whisk to combine. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until thickened. If too thick add more broth. Remove from heat and stir in the sherry. Taste and season with salt and pepper as desired.

Personal Notes:
This recipe is classic and never fails. Gigi loves it for two reasons; first, the beef is seared on the outside making for crispy end slices and second, the herbs make for a beautiful pan gravy. Gigi likes gravy.
