Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

It is 12:42pm my time, and I just took a 5 lb roast out of the oven, with red potatoes and onions around it. I used pepper, salt, and thyme on the roast; and if I could bottle this smell I could make a million bucks.

While it rests, I'm slicing some tomatoes into organic Spring Mix, and pouring a glass of iced tea.

I don't know if there is any "science" behind the salt rubbing but I know that it certainly makes for a very flavorful, crusty surface to the meat. It doesn't take very much salt and I always use natural sea salts so I am not concerned with the sodium issue.

Sounds good Annie, I'll try it with thyme, have been craving a thyme roast ever since remembering that wonderful smell. What is the purpose in rubbing in the salt, I wonder?

Has anyone heard of the Cook's Illustrated way to do a roast? In one of their roast recipes they say to rub the meat with salt, cover loosely with plastic wrap, let it sit for an hour, put the roast on a rack in a 300 degree oven until the internal temperature reads 125 - 135 (med. rare to med.) flipping the roast halfway through cooking, remove from oven and THEN sear in a hot skillet to get a very flavorful crusty exterior without over-cooking the interior. I have tried this and it works fantastic!

No, the roast one! I saw that roast recipe but I wasn't sure if that was the one or not, Thanks Carol, I added it to my cookbook. I have been craving roast something severe!

Amber are you talking about the tea recipe? It's in the first article:

"You can also make a tea with water, honey and thyme. Add a little lemon if you like and relax, let the herb do its magic. Thyme has been known to expel parasites in the body, so drinking this tea daily can be very beneficial." Personally I would drink it with a tea bag, also.

Here is Chef Meg's Roast Beef, just substitute thyme for the pepper:

Second link - WOW!! I'm definitely planting some, and definitely will add the dried I have now in the spice cabinet, to my tea kettle.

Ever since my 1st post about the aroma on beef roast, I have been craving it. Got a good deal on a roast and think I'm going to use Chef Meg's beef roast recipe, but only use thyme. Or mostly thyme. It's time!!

I should mention that as a medicinal herb it is great too. I'm sure someone here on this team can enlighten us as to all its wonderful uses there, but I do know of one and that is it can really help as a tea and in steam inhaling for any upper respiratory ailments. With tea you get both!

Yes. Though I haven't yet tried it in a PB&J but my guess is that it might just be quite tasty there too. It does go with sweet things and it goes very nice with some soups and sauces that have peanut butter in them, so...

I grow thyme in my window box. It really does well there. I love to cook with it too, it goes in just about everything.

Thyme is my most used culinary herb. There's hardly anything you can't put it into. I have found that growing thyme is very easy as it is like a wild, woody plant and very hardy. It normally stays put where you plant it unlike oregano that likes to spread out and even jump the fence! There are different varieties of thyme and some are more hardy than others--can't tell you which is which. I have many varieties in my yard (back and front) so never have to buy it. It does well in a pot too.

LOL, I meant a planting pot not a soup pot though it goes well in that too...

I do use thyme, want to grow some but right now only have store bought dried, it's good with poultry and smells heavenly on oven beef roast. For some reason can't get that thyme smell on beef in the crockpot - just not the same.

I'm bookmarking this thread and will come back to read your links later. Thank you!

Hey guys! Sorry I didn't do one of these for October. I thought that going with a common Thanksgiving herb would be good for November.

So the winner is Thyme! Here are some good links for Thyme. I'll be adding more as the month progresses!
