This is the first segment in a Master Class on How To Roast Meat, which provides information on preparing, cooking, resting and serving a perfectly cooked roast. We broke the class down into five separate videos for easy viewing. See the master class playlist here.
How To Tie a Roast
Tie a boneless roast to keep an even shape and cook evenly.
Factors that Affect Roasting Time
There are three factors that affect roasting time:
- How much it weighs.
- Whether it’s bone-in or boneless.
- The temperature or the roast before cooking
How to Cook the Perfect Roast
I like the low and slow method of roasting for even cooking and juicy meat. Sear the meat first, let it sit out to warm up before putting in the oven and set your time to match the desired internal temperature, such as rare or medium rare.

Rest the Roast for Optimum Results
Rest the meat after taking it out of the oven to maintain juiciness and flavor.
Here’s a quick recap of the important points on the roasting technique.
