Roast New York Strip Loin With Garlic-Herb Crust

New York strip loin, also called top loin of beef, is a succulent, elegant roast. If you want a lot of leftovers (they are great for sandwiches), use a seven-pound roast and multiply the seasonings by 1½. Either way, have your butcher trim some of the fat, leaving about ¼ inch for the best flavor. With this as your entrée, uncork a Cabernet Sauvignon.

Prep Time

        Prep and cook time: 4 hours
        Yield: Serves 8 - 10


    •    4 tsps olive oil
    •    4 garlic cloves
    •    8 fresh sage leaves
    •    4 tsps fresh thyme leaves
    •    1 1/2 tsps ground black pepper
    •    1 (4 to 5 pound) boneless beef loin New York strip roast, fat trimmed to 1/4 inch


  1. With machine running, drop garlic into processor; blend until finely chopped. Add sage, thyme, oil, salt and pepper; process until paste forms.
  2. Pat meat dry with paper towels. Rub meat all over with herb paste. Cover; chill at least 3 hours. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep refrigerated.)
  3. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place meat, fat side up, on rack in roasting pan. Roast meat 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Roast meat until instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of meat registers 130°F for medium-rare, about 35 minutes (or 140°F for medium, about 40 minutes). Remove from oven; let stand 20 minutes. Cut crosswise into ⅓-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices on platter.
