  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  2. Pierce top of roast with a small knife. Force garlic slices into the cuts. Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper.

  3. Place bay leaves in the bottom of a roasting pan. Set roast, fat-side up, on top of bay leaves. Mix cider vinegar and thyme in a small bowl; pour over top of roast.
