  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the red wine, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, honey, soy sauce, olive oil, dried thyme, dried rosemary, dried oregano, kosher salt, and black pepper. Whisk the marinade until well combined.
  2. Place the beef roast in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the roast, ensuring it is fully coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator and let it marinate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, turning the roast occasionally to evenly distribute the flavors.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Remove the roast from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off, and transfer it to a roasting pan with a rack.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh parsley, chopped fresh thyme, chopped fresh rosemary, and olive oil. Mix until the ingredients are evenly distributed and moistened.
  5. Pat the herb crust mixture onto the top and sides of the roast, forming a generous coating.
  6. Place the roast beef in the preheated oven and roast for about 20 minutes per pound (45 minutes per kg) for medium-rare doneness, or adjust the cooking time based on your preferred level of doneness.
  7. Remove the roast from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a more tender and flavorful roast.
