The key is to find a roast
that is marbled with bits

digital thermometer and a roasting
pan. I save some juice to make
Yorkshire pudding.

First, preheat the oven to 200 degrees (yes, 200). Season the outside of meat (Montreal Steak Seasoning is the best for this). Pat the seasoning into the sides of the meat.

Sear meat on top of stove in the cast iron skillet (you can use a heavy skillet, but the cast iron is the best choice as it gives it the best crust). You will have to sear each side separately, about three-to-five minutes per side at high heat. Keep turning until all the sides are seared. Sear does not mean burn, just brown it and turn, as cast iron can heat up to a very high heat. Beware that you cannot be distracted while you are doing this step—you must pay attention and keep turning it and searing.

Parmesan and chive mashed potatoes, Yorkshire
pudding and a good desert.
