Ingredients for 1 Whole Roast servings
- 1 Box Rock Salt
- 1 Bulb Garlic, Clove Separated & Peeled
- Fresh Ground Pepper
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slightly crack the peeled garlic cloves and cut in half. Perforate 1-inch slits throughout the roast and insert garlic chunks into the slits at varying depths.
Line a roasting pan with enough foil to wrap the whole roast. Pour a layer of salt in the bottom of the pan. Place roast rib side down on top of salt layer.
Generously oil the whole roast. Rub with fresh ground pepper. Cover with remaining rock salt. Wrap foil around the roast.
Cook for 25 to 30 minutes per pound.
Pull roast 5 degrees to 10 degrees before desired level of pink in the center, as the roast will continue to cook once removed from the heat. Meat thermometer should read:
130 degrees for Rare
150 degrees for Well Done
The ends of the roast will be more done than the center. Discard salt before serving.
