Roasting essentials

  1. Position the oven shelves so the meat is in the centre of the oven.
  2. Place the joint uncovered on a wire rack in a roasting tin ensuring any fat is on the top. This allows the juices to run down and baste the joint naturally.
  3. Allow the joint to rest for 20-30 minutes after cooking to let the meat fibres relax and juices distribute evenly so the
    joint is moist and easy to carve.

  4. The degree of cooking can be tested easily using a meat thermometer towards the end of the cooking time: insert into the centre of the joint or at the thickest point, when it reaches the required temperature (in the table above) the meat will be done to your liking.
