  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix first 5 ingredients in small bowl. Set aside. Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Brush beef with oil. Sprinkle with salt. Coat with seasoning mixture.

  • Roast, uncovered, until internal temperature reaches 135°F for medium-rare (1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours) or 150°F for medium (2 to 2 1/2 hours). Cover with foil and let stand 15 minutes before carving. (The temperature of the meat will rise about 10° during standing.)
