Awesome roast. The cooking time was underestimated for me - it was very rare at 2 hours, needed a bit more time. Served with chimichurri, yum.

I made this for Christmas dinner and it was lovely. Everyone went on and on about how delicious the food was, to the point that I was embarrassed and had to find a way to change the subject. :0)I served it alongside au gratin potatoes (TOH recipe), sauteed green beans, homemade rolls, and cranberry punch.

My family loved the herb dry rub! I have mixed up a shaker bottle of it to keep ready for hamburgers and meatloaf/meatballs. I also used it on vension steaks. When I use it on hamburger and meatballs I use garlic powder instead of garlic cloves. Also tried it on vension and it was excellent. For vension Iput rub with garlic powder in a pie pan and coated both sides of venison steak and put into fry pan with hot olive oil.My family isn't big on pepper so I did reduce the pepper just a bit.Fantastic recipe!
