Rosemary flavors roast
Try this Rosemary Rib Roast recipe from the American Angus Association for a Sunday dinner: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place a 5-pound rib roast fat side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush roast with balsamic vinegar. Coat top, ends and sides of roast with an herb paste made from 2 tablespoons minced garlic, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried, 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried, 2 tablespoons of salt and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Roast for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue roasting for 2 hours for a medium degree of doneness. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.
