A Quick Guide To Slow Cooking A Roast In The Oven
Sometimes we think we don't have enough cooking equipment in the kitchen, but there are many ways to make use of what's around us. Before you rush to buy a slow cooker, let's use your oven.
These are the steps on how to slow cook a roast in the oven:
- Peeled garlic cloves
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil
- 3 and a half boneless rump roast
Step 1 - With your roast wrapped, set it on a clean space for an hour at room temperature.
Step 2 - While you wait for the roast, preheat your oven, and set it at 375 degrees.
Step 3 - Stab holes in the roast and insert the garlic slivers.
Step 4 - Pour olive oil on the meat and massage it.
Step 5 - Drizzle salt and pepper all around the meat and ensure it is equally distributed.
Step 6 - Put the roast in the oven rack without a pan and position it with the fat facing upwards so that it drips down to the meat as it cooks, keeping your meat tender.
Note: Put a drip pan under the roast for drippings that you can use as gravy and turn the heat to 175 for more drippings on the pan.
Step 7 - Cook the roast for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.
Step 8 - After 30 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 225 degrees and cook it for 3 hours. A meat thermometer would be useful in this case so you can remove the roast when you get a 135 reading.
Step 9 - A medium-rare roast should have a reading of 135 to 140 and a medium roast at 150 to 155.
Step 10 - When you achieve your desired reading, remove the roast from the oven, and cover it with foil before carving.
Now that you know how to slow cook a roast in the oven, it's time for the sauce! You can never have too much gravy, so be generous with your sauce for your guests.
Making your roast gravy:
- Step 1 - Take the drippings from the pan in the oven and add some wine.
- Step 2 - Place it under medium heat.
- Step 3 - Remove garlic that may have fallen in your sauce.
- Step 4 - Add a tablespoon of cornstarch and whisk it until it thickens.
- Step 5 - Add salt and pepper and some herbs for a savory finish.
Learning how to slow cook a roast in the oven is a worthwhile task, especially when you start carving that tender meat. It's nostalgia, a taste of comfort, and a feel of a warm, homey dinner.
