A Few Tips on Roasting with Your Oven

20110128_food_0003-300x199So you’ve just had a Maytag oven repair, and now you’re looking to do some extra cooking on your brand new appliance! The problem is the only thing you know how to cook are frozen pizzas. No worries, that’s why we’re here to give you a few tips on roasting with your oven. Not only is roasting fairly easy, but it makes for some delicious meals as well.

Roasting is essentially cooking and surrounding the food with dry heat. With roasting, you don’t necessarily want to add moisture to the food. Since the food is cooked from the outside in, you will also want to make sure your meal is cooked thoroughly before you take it out of the oven. A meat thermometer can help you with this process.  You will usually use a roasting method when working with larger, more tender cuts of pork, beef, or lamb. You can also roast vegetables, fish, and poultry.

In order to properly roast your meal, you will need to purchase a roasting pan. These should be shallow and deep, with a heavy flat bottom to help deglaze any drippings from the meat. To get the most out of the flavor, coat the meat with some oil, pepper, salt, and any other seasonings and place it in your new roasting pan. Low heat cooking will help steam or braise the food while high heat will help the food develop a nice, delicious crust.
