Rosemary and Garlic Strip Loin Roast

From dinner party entree to holiday feast, this is sure to be a hit around the table!

Makes: 8 Servings

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: More than 60 Minutes


  • Star Ranch Angus® strip loin roast (about 4 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Rub outside of meat with olive oil, salt, black pepper, rosemary and garlic.
  3. Place roast into a medium sized roasting pan with a rack inside (so that oven heat can circulate all the way around the roast).
  4. Roast in middle of oven at 400ºF for 10 minutes, watching to make sure that garlic does not get too brown. Reduce oven temperature to 350ºF and lay a 10” piece of foil loosely over the roast to keep garlic from burning. Set timer for 50 minutes.
  5. After the timer goes off, begin to monitor the cooked temperature with a meat thermometer. Total cooking time should be around 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours but will vary based on different ovens and desired doneness. Final temperature for medium-rare should be 135ºF, with a resting time of 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

Roasting TIP

Place roast (directly from refrigerator), fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan (the exception is a rib roast; the ribs form a natural rack).
