  • Mix all ingredients together is a small bowl. Allow your roast to come to room temperature while you are preparing the rub.


  • Coat roast with olive oil on both sides and then dry rub each side pressing the rub into the meat as you go. Apply liberally.
  • Place roast in the center of a large piece of heavy duty aluminum foil or double layered regular aluminum foil. Bring the edges of the foil together leaving a small air pocket.
  • Place the foil packet in the center of a baking dish as some of the juices will likely leak out of the foil pouch.
  • Roast in a 275 degree oven for 4 hours. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 20 minutes before slicing.
  • Juice can be poured into a gravy separator and the lean juice used for dipping (au jus) or mixed with equal parts butter and almond flour to make a delicious gravy.
