Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Brush the cross rib roast with the balsamic vinegar, making sure the balsamic vinegar gets into all the nooks of the roast. Make a paste of the minced garlic, thyme leaves, rosemary leaves, salt, pepper, and oil oil. Rub paste mixture well all over the roast.
In a large roasting pan, cook the prepared roast for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. and cook an additional 50 to 60 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 125 degrees F. on your instant-read digital meat thermometer
Remove roast from oven and cover the roast loosely with aluminum foil and let stand for approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Remember, the roast will continue to cook as it sets. The temperature will rise approximately 5 to 10 degrees. So, pay attention to how long you let the cooked roast sit before cutting and serving.
Makes 6 servings.
My roast was covered with a string netting to hold the meat together during cooking. I removed it because I did not want to put the seasoning over the top of the netting, only to have it all come off when removing it prior to slicing. I seasoned the roast then tied one string around the roast to help hold it during cooking.
