Reduce heat to 325 degrees F, and roast until internal temperature of meat reaches 160 degrees F for medium cooked, and juices run clear when pricked. * Tip: If I am not sure of the degree of doneness, I cut a tiny wedge out of the meat and if the color is to my liking – it is roasted to perfection.
  6. Remove from oven, cover loosely with an aluminum tent, and allow to rest for 15 – 20 min before carving.
