Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Place parsley, garlic, pepper and 1 tablespoon olive oil in food processor or blender container. Cover; process until just blended. Rub mixture evenly over all surfaces of roast.

(Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F (62.7°C) for medium rare; 160°F (71.1°C) for medium.)
