- Wearing a long sleeve shirt& oven gloves (so that you do not get splashed with hot oil), place roast into hot roasting pan& sear on all sides until nicely browned& about 1/2 cup of fat has rendered, which should take a total of about 6 to 8 minutes.

- Generously season again with salt& pepper,& then generously sprinkle the rest of the seasonings evenly.
- Place roast, uncovered, in the middle of the oven that has been pre-heated to 325 degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours or until roast is almost done.

- If you desire it to be medium, remove from oven when it is medium-rare.
- After removing from oven, tent with aluminum foil.
- Allow to stand for 20 to 30 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute themselves evenly throughout the roast,& for the roast to complete its cooking to your desired doneness.
- Set the roast onto a cutting board& carve immediately& serve.
- Place all of the juices, including the 1/2 cup rendered from the initial searing process, into a gravy boat to serve as the au jus.
