The 3 Essentials to a Mouthwatering Roast

December 18, 2014

Want to make a roast as delicious as it looks in the video below? You don't want it too dry, or too overdone. Whether it's chicken, beef, or turkey, the 3 essentials to a good roast still apply. Firstly, a roast is only as good as the roasting pan. It contains your juices, heat distribution, and consequently, your flavor. Secondly, consistent basting keeps the meat moist and enhances its natural taste. Lastly, a meat thermometer ensures that it doesn't keep too long in the oven, which is especially important for ensuring doneness with beef. While roast beef is typically seasoned with salt and pepper, the video below goes an extra step and offers a thorough process that's simple to emulate, short of reaching through the screen to assist you!

Basting is especially useful when you do not sear it first, to help add flavor to the top.This stainless steel spoon is perfect for basting as it has a long reach handle.

As seen in the video above, many seasoned chefs may judge doneness by time, or colour. But no oven is the same and cooking times vary in ensuring a consistently perfect roast.

Its pointed stem makes it easier to insert into the thickest part of the roast, where you can measure a few spots up and down to double-check the temperature.
