Oven Roasting

Although it requires more time, oven roasting is the simplest cooking method because it requires little attention.

Cooking Tip

To carve a Rib Roast, turn the roast on its side and place on carving board. Insert fork from the side, below the top rib. Carve across the "face" of the roast toward the rib bone. Cut along the rib bone with the tip of the knife to release a slice of beef.

Cooking Steps:

1. Choose your Cut

Some of the best cuts for oven roasting include: Strip Roast, Ribeye Roast and Tenderloin Roast.

2. prepare your beef

Place roast (directly from the refrigerator), fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. (The exception is the Rib Roast; the ribs form a natural rack).

3. Cook your beef

Roast according to guidelines. Transfer roast to carving board and tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes.
