The Neat Meat Company | Recipes & Techniques - roasting techniques

The smell and taste of a good roast beef is hard to beat, and here is exactly how to replicate those smells and tastes again and again. Brown it in a non-stick frying pan over a very high heat to seal in juices and prevent the meat from drying out while roasting. Preheat the oven to 220° C. Liberally sprinkle generous amounts of good quality salt and pepper onto a piece of baking paper.


The Neat Meat Company | Recipes & Techniques - tying rolling techniques

Tying the meat keeps its shape during roasting, helps to cook it more evenly and keeps any additions to the roast, such as herbs, firmly in place during cooking. An oven thermometer will ensure your oven is running at the right temperature recommended in the recipe to cook meat evenly. If you don't feel confident testing your roast with a skewer, a thermometer can be left in the joint while cooking.
