1 medium lemon
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley, divided
2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided
½ teaspoon pepper, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil

- Remove roast when meat thermometer registers 135°F for medium-rare. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium-rare.)
- Toss potatoes with remaining 2 tablespoons chopped parsley and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Carve roast into thin slices. Season beef with salt, as desired.
