Oven roast meats

Oven roast meats

A perfectly cooked, succulent piece of meat is not nearly as difficult as you think. Here are our top tips for the cuts to choose, as well as the preparation and roasting.

Oven roasting uses dry heat and is best suited for tender cuts of meat. To preserve the succulence, seal the meat by lightly browning it in a pre-heated pan. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, place it, fat-side up, in a roasting pan (a rack may be used) and roast in a pre-heated oven (160-180°C) following the guidelines below for time. Allow the roast meat to stand for about 10 minutes before carving.
