Recipe Summary

Serves 6-8


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • With a sharp paring knife, cut 12 slits just under the fat of the roast and insert the garlic slices. Season the roast with the salt, pepper, and oregano. Place it, fat-side down, on a roasting rack. Place rack in a roasting pan and fill with water, just skimming the bottom of the roast.

  • Heat grill to medium high. If using a charcoal grill, build a very hot fire. When the coals are white hot, add another layer of charcoal. This will ensure the grill stays hot enough to cook the meat.

  • Place pan directly on grill. Cover grill and allow the roast to cook slowly. Cook about 20 minutes per pound for medium rare or until a meat thermometer reads about 130° F. Halfway through, turn the roast and add more water if needed. Let rest about 10 minutes before carving.
