You just have to BELIEVE and not open the oven! I made this for Christmas dinner last year & was worried it wouldn't work, but the meat came out perfectly--very tender and delicious. I rubbed a bit of olive oil and a couple tablespoons gourmet Rosemary salt blend on the roast in addition to the recommended fresh ground black pepper
