Preheat oven to 300°F. Trim any silver skin from the roast. Rub roast with olive oil. In a small bowl, combine sage, salt and pepper. Roll roast in sage mixture to completely coat. Place the prepared roast in a rack set inside a roasting pan. Pour water in the bottom of the pan to create steam during cooking. Cover with a lid or foil. Roast for one hour. Remove lid and baste with drippings every 30 minutes thereafter. Turn roast occasionally. Cook until roast reaches an internal temperature of 140°F for rare and 165°F for medium. Let rest 10 – 15 minutes and serve.
