Preheat oven to 350 F. Press 1 of the herb rubs (below) onto all meat surfaces.  Place roast, fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan.

* Medium rare doneness = 145 F final meat temperature after 10 to 15 minute standing time.

*Medium doneness = 160 F final meat temperature after 10 to 15 minute standing time.
