ROASTING
TIPS
USING A MEAT THERMOMETER
Stick the thermometer
into the center of the largest muscle of meat, or in
the Inner thigh or breast of poultry. For an accurate reading, the tip of the
thermometer should not touch the bone or gristle or rest in a pcoke! of fat.
As the meat cooks, the thermometer may slip from its positlon. If the reading
on the thermometer seems unusually high for the length of time the meat
has cooked, check the thermometer
and reposltlon it if necessary.
If you let a roast stand 10 to 20 minutes after you remove It from the oven
It will be easier to carve and the Internal temperature will raise as It stands.
Remove the roast from the oven when the thermometer reads 5'JF to lOoF
less than the Internal temperture you desire. If you do not plan to let the
roast stand, leave the meat in the oven until the full temperature IS reached
Roasting time WIII depend on the oven temperature, meat temperature,
sze. shape and type of the meat, the proportion of bone and fat, and
the degree of doneness (Internal temperature)
you desire.
Add extra time (15 to 25 minutes per pound) when roasting frozen
meats
For even cookIng, all poultry must be completely thawed before roasting.
For self-bastmg, put the meat In the pan with the fat side up.
Use a roasting pan that fits the size of the roast. too small a, pan WIII
let the melted fat dnp over the edge and too large a pan WIII cause
spattering.
Reduce spattenng by putting lightly crushed loil In the pan under the
food
To best measure doneness, always use a meat thermometer
For easier carving. let the roast stand 10 to 20 mmutes after removing
It from the oven Always carve across the grain of the meat
