  • 1 boneless beef rib roast (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), rolled and tied
  • 4 ounces asiago cheese, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 6 cloves garlic, cut into thick slivers
  • 1 bunch rosemary, torn into 1 inch sprigs
  • Small sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • Coarse salt (kosher or sea) and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Rosemary Peppercorn Sauce for serving

Step 1: With a sharp paring knife, make holes at 1-inch intervals all over the roast. Stuff 1/3 of the holes with the asiago, 1/3 with the garlic slivers, and 1/3 with the rosemary sprigs.

Step 2: Generously season the roast with salt and pepper.

Step 3: Set up the rotisserie following the manufacturer’s instructions. If using a gas grill, preheat the front and rear burners to high. If using a charcoal grill, light the coals and rake into rows in front and back, leaving a gap in the center. Skewer the roast on the spit. Rotisserie the roast until cooked to medium-rare (about 145°F on an instant-read thermometer; 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours on a covered rotisserie. For medium (160°F), cook for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. If using a charcoal grill, replenish the coals as needed.

Step 4: Transfer the roast to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut into thin crosswise slices using an electric knife or sharp carving knife. Serve immediately.
