  1. Preheat oven to 375º.
  2. Combine mustard, garlic, herbs, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Place the roast on a rack over a shallow pan and coat with the mustard mixture.
  4. Place in oven and roast until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat registers 155º, about 1 hour.

Tip: Use any combination of fresh herbs – rosemary, thyme and sage work well.
