Roast Beef with Rosemary

Ingredients
1
1
2 ounce can anchovy fillets, drained
1
clove garlic, peeled and smashed
1
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1
tablespoon red wine vinegar
 
Olive oil
1
2 1/2 pound beef strip loin roast or top sirloin roast*
 

Directions

  1. Remove leaves from the rosemary sprig. Place rosemary leaves, anchovies, garlic, and black pepper on a cutting board. Roughly chop mixture. Drag the flat, broad side of the knife across the mixture in one direction and then the other until it forms a smooth paste. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in vinegar and enough olive oil to make a spreadable paste. Set aside.
  2. Trim most of the fat from the roast; score any fat that remains. Rub anchovy paste over beef. Tuck edges of the roast under and tie with kitchen string. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Place the roast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert a oven-going meat thermometer into center of roast. Roast, uncovered, for 15 minutes; reduce temperature to 350 degrees F. Roast for 45 to 60 minutes more or until the thermometer registers 135 degrees F for medium-rare. Remove roast from oven. Cover with foil; let stand 15 minutes. (The temperature of meat will rise to 145 degrees F after standing). Top with fresh rosemary leaves.

From the Test Kitchen

Try substituting 1/4 cup purchased black olive tapenade for the anchovy paste.

*

If you really love anchovies, double the ingredients for the paste and thickly coat the roast.
