How to Cook the Perfect Roast

Cook a Perfect Roast Every Time With These Tips

With at least a few more weeks of winter ahead of us, it’s not quite time to break out the salad recipes. Instead, add a roast to your meal plan this weekend – it’ll fill the house with a delicious and comforting aroma and will provide you with enough leftovers for several lunches during the week. Take a look at how easy it is to cook the perfect roast.

Traditional Roast Beef

A traditional roast beef dinner is a Sunday staple in most English homes. Paired with tender roast vegetables, rich gravy and crispy Yorkshire pudding, it’s not hard to see why its such a favorite. Despite its simplicity, roast dinner is bursting with flavour and is relatively easy to prepare. Choose a few vegetables to place around the roast like carrots, onions and potatoes and you’ve got a hardy meal for a crowd.

Non-Traditional Roast Recipes

While beef is the classic meat to roast, many others lend themselves to this method of cooking as well. Pork loin, turkey breast or lamb shoulder can all be roasted and paired with complimentary sides for a satisfying meal. The key to a mosit roast, regardless of the type of meat you’re using, is to cook it on a low heat. Boneless roasts are the perfect food to use a ceramic knife on.

Roast Beef Recipe

Cooking roast beef is as simple as buying a roast and placing it in the oven. Preheat oven to 350°F.

Choose a four to six pound eye round or top sirloin roast and place it on a rack in the centre of a roasting pan. Surround the roast with your vegetables of choice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in oven on centre rack and cook for 20-30 minutes per pound of roast.

When roast is done cooking, take out of the oven, remove the vegetables from the pan and tent the roast in the pan with tinfoil. Let roast sit, tented for about 20 minutes.  Once 20 minutes has passed, use your sharpest Chef’s knife to slice roast. Serve with horseradish. Pan juices can be used to make a beef gravy.
