14 servings

1 tablespoon Spice Islands® Crushed Rosemary

1 tablespoon Spice Islands® Thyme

2 tablespoons minced garlic (about 3 cloves)

Preheat oven to 325ºF.

Pierce meat generously with fork. In non-metal baking dish, mix balsamic vinegar, rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper. Coat all sides of meat in marinade, then place flat and spoon any remaining marinade into center. Roll up meat from short side to make a 10-inch long roll, 5 inches wide. Tie meat several times along a length of roll with string.
