I applied liberal amounts of soy sauce powder, garlic powder, msg, black pepper, and thyme.
I then placed it in the oven on low broil to form a crust. I clarified the purge juices for a sauce.
Once I removed it from the oven, I split it in half right down the middle, then sliced a strip off, and sliced the strip into slices so that I had pieces of the "outside" removed from the "inside" that had no direct contact with the seasonings. The outside pieces had some thyme flavor, but not very strong. There was a hint of garlic, but also not strong.
