  1. Rub the beef generously with freshly ground pepper, and place in a heavy bottomed pot large enough to hold the meat.
  2. Drizzle the olive oil over the meat and turn the meat over to coat with the oil.
  3. Add the bay leaf and garlic cloves and marinate for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the bay leaf.
  5. Brown the meat over medium-high heat, turning to brown evenly.
  6. This step will take about 15-20 minutes, depending on the size of the roast.

  8. When the roast is well browned on all sides and ends return the browned garlic cloves to the pot, remove the pot from the heat, and cover.

  10. The internal temperature will be 140 degrees.
  11. Season the pan juices with salt after meat has rested.
