Suzanne Goin covers this veal roast with herbs and butter before cooking to get extra-rich pan juices. They are delicious spooned over the exceptionally tender meat and served with the sweet roasted garlic cloves.

  1. 2 tablespoons rosemary leaves, plus 3 sprigs, broken into 3-inch pieces
  2. 2 tablespoons thyme leaves, plus 8 sprigs
  3. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  4. One 5-pound boneless veal loin
  5. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 6 pieces
  7. 24 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
  8. Pickled Golden Raisins, for serving
  1. In a small bowl, combine the rosemary leaves, thyme leaves and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Set the veal in a baking dish and rub with the herb oil. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. One hour before roasting, remove the veal from the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°. Season the veal well with salt and pepper. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil until almost smoking. Add the veal and sear over high heat until well-browned all over, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat. Arrange the rosemary and thyme sprigs on the roast and top with the butter. Scatter the garlic around the meat. Roast for about 1 hour, basting with the butter, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 140°. Remove the veal from the oven and let rest for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Slice the veal 1/4 inch thick and arrange on a platter. Pile the roasted garlic alongside. Spoon the pan juices over the veal and serve with the Pickled Golden Raisins.
