Herb topping for Roast Beef

I decided to use the dried herb for this rub because I forget to buy a fresh one. 😅 But you are welcome to use fresh herbs if you have them in your kitchen.

The herb rub calls for minced garlic. I used 3 cloves of garlic and mashed them using a mortar and pestle. Add the herb, rock salt, and peppercorns. Mix this herb rub on all over the cut of beef.

TIP: I always use a roasting thermometer when roasting meat in the oven.
