New York Strip Loin with Garlic-Herb Crust

Cooking for Kids

My Nanny Family said this recipe I found on epicurious makes the most tender beef they have ever had. The recipe uses New York strip loin, which is also called top loin of beef, which is a succulent, elegant roast. But I think my Nanny Kids actually prefer when I just use the garlic-herb crust on a London Broil. If you want to make sandwiches the next day with left overs be sure to make a large top loin like pictured above.

You Will Need:

    • Food processor
    • 4 garlic cloves
    • 8 fresh sage leaves
    • 4 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
    • 4 teaspoons olive oil
    • 4 teaspoons salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
    • 1 4- to 5-pound boneless beef loin New York strip roast, fat trimmed to 1/4 inch

    What to Do:

    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 1/3-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices on platter.
