Recipe for Roast Beef with Thyme and Fennel Crust

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings: 6


  1. 1.5 kg boneless beef roast
  2. 2 tablespoons fennel seeds
  3. 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  4. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  5. Salt and black pepper to taste
  6. 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a small bowl, combine fennel seeds, thyme leaves, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
  3. Rub the beef roast with olive oil, then evenly apply the herb mixture all over the beef, pressing it into the meat to ensure it sticks.
  4. Place the beef in a roasting pan and roast for approximately 90 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 135°F (57°C) for medium-rare.
  5. Remove the roast from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the roast, ensuring moist and flavorful beef.
