You might not believe us when we tell you, but you're just 4 ingredients away from a stunning centerpiece roast. We combined an inexpensive piece of beef, tomatoes, garlic, and thyme, stuck it in the oven and poured ourselves a glass of wine. It's recipes like this one—with a decent amount of inactive time—that we love to employ during the busy holiday season. Serve this will a side of smashed potatoes or mashed celery root and a bottle of cabernet.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 350° F.

Step 2

Season the beef with 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper and place in a large roasting pan.

Step 3

In a bowl, combine the tomatoes, garlic, thyme, oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Step 4

Scatter the tomato mixture around the meat and roast to the desired doneness, about 1 hour for medium-rare (internal temperature 125° F).

Step 5

Transfer the beef to a cutting board and let rest at least 10 minutes before slicing. Divide among individual plates and serve with the tomatoes and garlic.
