Step 1

Preheat the to 350°F.

Spread garlic cloves out on a small oven-safe pan. Toss with 1 teaspoon oil, cover the pan with foil and bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until the garlic is soft enough to mash with a fork.

To make the garlic & peppercorn crust, mash roasted garlic in a medium-size mixing bowl until there are no large pieces. Add mustard, mayonnaise, bread crumbs, and peppercorns. Mix well and set aside.

In a skillet large enough to fit the roast, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat until the oil begins to ripple.

Season roast with salt then carefully place it into skillet. Sear until all sides are brown, about 5 to 8 minutes per side.

Move meat to a roasting pan and make sure the fatty side is facing up. Let roast cool a bit before evenly pressing the crust all over the top. Roast 90 to 120 minutes, or until desired doneness. (At 125°F, the roast is medium rare. At 130°F, the roast is medium.)

Let the roast rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
