Use a small roasting pan (about 12- x 10- x 2-inches/30 x 25 x 5 cm) to fit this compact roast. In a larger pan, the drippings may burn and lead to disappointing gravy. Save half of the meat and some gravy for Monday's meal.

In small bowl, combine vinegar, oil, garlic, thyme, oregano, lemon rind, peppercorns and salt ; rub all over roast.

Place on rack in roasting pan; add 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) water to pan. Roast in 500°F (260°C) oven for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 275°F (140°C); roast until thermometer inserted in centre registers 150°F (65°C) for medium-rare, about 1-1/4 hours.
