“This recipe comes from the R.S.V.P. section of an October 1989 issue of Bon Appetit magazine. It was requested from Bistro 110 in Chicago,Illinois. It's tender and juicy and full of herbs and garlic.The restaurant makes this in its woodburning oven, but it tastes just as delicious baked in your conventional oven! To "flatten" garlic, hit it with the flat side of a large, broad knife. Fresh rosemary and thyme are definitely better in this recipe! Refrigeration time is not included in prep time.”
