Holiday Roasting.

Follow these simple steps for perfect oven roasting:

  • Season – coat the meat with a little olive oil and sprinkle with kosher or sea salt and freshly cracked pepper.
  • Roasting – start with a high-heat, 450° pre-heated oven for 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the roast. Then reduce heat to 325° and roast until desired temperature is reached:

  • Rare – 125 degrees
    Medium – 135 degrees
    Well – 150 degrees

  • Resting – when roast reaches the desired temperature, remove from oven, cover lightly with foil and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes before carving.
