Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Mix a liberal amount of salt and pepper together with the Savory blend, cayenne, and garlic, and rub it all over the roast.
  2. Place the meat in a roasting pan (use a rack if the roast is boneless, but don't bother if the bone is still in) and put in the oven. Roast, undisturbed, for 15 minutes.
  3. Open the oven and pour about 1/2 C of stock over the roast; lower the heat to 325F. Continue to roast, adding about 1/4 C of liquid every 15 minutes or so. If the liquid accumulates on the bottom of the pan, use it to baste; if not, add more.
  4. Start checking the roast after 1 1/4 hours of total cooking time (it's likely to take about 1 1/2 hours). When it is done--and instant-read thermometer will register 145F to 150F--remove it to a warm platter.
  5. Put the roasting pan on the stove over one or two burners set to medium-high. If there is a great deal of liquid in it, reduce it to about 3/4 cup, scraping any brown bits that have accumulated. If the pan is dry, add 1 C of liquid and follow the same process. When the sauce has reduced some, stir in the butter, slice the roast, and serve it with the sauce.
