Frozen roast is a godsend, particularly if you like your roast as tender and juicy as possible. And thanks to some inspired food manufacturers who spotted a gap in the market with this product, the roast can now be easily cooked from frozen almost anywhere. Read on for our step-by-step guide to cooking a frozen roast in the oven!
How To Cook Frozen Roast In Oven
Slice your roast into individual portions
If you’re using a large piece of meat, you’ll need to slice it into smaller portions so that it cooks more evenly. This will result in a more tender and juicy roast, which is perfect for a mid-week supper.
Arrange the slices in a single layer on a baking tray
Place the slices near the middle of the tray, with some space between each slice to ensure that they cook evenly and don’t overlap each other as they cook through. If there isn’t enough space, simply place additional slices on top of the first ones for extra space (without overlapping).
Cover with tin foil
Cover the roast with a sheet of tin foil to trap heat and ensure that it cooks evenly. This will also help retain moisture in the meat, which is important if you want your roast to be tender and juicy.
Cook in the oven at 160°C (325°F) for 1 hour
After an hour, remove the foil and cook for a further 10 minutes until cooked through, but not browned – this is especially important if you’ve used a lean cut of meat, as it will brown much more than a fatty piece of meat would. If you’re using a thick piece of meat like a steak or pork loin, then the cooking time will be shorter and the meat will be more well done by the end of cooking time. If you’re using more than one tray, then cook them in batches (ideally on different trays so that each tray has its own space to cook).
Serve with your favorite vegetables
Once cooked, the meat should be ready to serve. For the most tender and juicy meat, serve with a side salad (ideally a green salad) and some steamed vegetables such as carrots and broccoli. ok, you can serve the roast with your favorite vegetables. We like to serve vegetables with a little bit of butter and a little bit of lemon juice. looked, serve the roast with your favorite vegetables, such as sliced carrots and potatoes.
What’s So Great About The Frozen Roast?
1. It’s cheaper
The cost of buying a roast from the supermarket is typically around $5 or more, and that’s before you’ve added up the cost of the meat, vegetables, and gravy. Frozen roasts are typically much cheaper than this, costing $3 or less per kg. This makes them a great choice for people on a budget.
2. It’s much faster
A frozen roast takes about 5 minutes to defrost in the fridge and then another 10 minutes in the microwave to heat it up before cooking as described below. All told, you can have dinner ready in under 40 minutes! And that includes chopping and dicing vegetables!
3. It tastes better than fresh roast – because it’s already been cooked
It may sound like an obvious point but we don’t want to leave it out! The fact is that frozen roasts are already cooked when they are bought – so there’s no need to worry about whether it’s fresh or not. And as we mentioned above, the risk of bacterial contamination is also much lower.
What Is Your Favorite Way To Cook A Frozen Roast In The Oven?
- Prepare the roast and place it in a preheated oven.
- Set the temperature to between 180 and 200 degrees Celsius.
- Cook for around 5 minutes, turn the oven off, leave it in for another 10 minutes, then take it out of the oven and allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes before serving.
What Are Some Tips For Cooking A Frozen Roast In The Oven?
- The roast is best cooked from frozen, so it’s a good idea to thaw it out in the fridge overnight and then cook it before you need to use it.
- Once thawed, the roast should be cut into 2-inch chunks for cooking in the oven. If you have a large roast, then divide it into smaller chunks for your oven dish.
- Don’t try to cook all of your frozen roasts at once – remember that you need to cook them in batches, and take care not to overcrowd your oven dish (you can always make extra dishes out of leftover roast).
- Cooking time: Frozen roasts generally take longer than roasted ones because they are dense and require longer cooking times. So take care when preheating your oven – check that you have enough space in your oven dish before setting the timer! Remember that if you don’t like your meat too well done, just pop it back into the oven for a few minutes after it’s cooked.
- Cooking instructions: The most important thing is that your roast should be cooked thoroughly and evenly all the way through and that the meat is cooked to your liking. Frozen roasts respond very well to variations in cooking time, so you can cook them for longer if you’re not sure how long they will take, or just check on them from time to time.
Frozen meat isn’t as good as fresh meat, but it’s close. Roast is a particularly convenient example of a frozen meat product, since it is easy to prepare and can be eaten as is, or with a side. The easiest way to make frozen roast even easier to cook is to buy a whole roast and cut it into portions yourself, removing any packaging in the process. Then, you can cook the frozen roast from any portion whenever you like, without having to remember to buy it in advance! Frozen roasts are a great way to eat a hearty meal without having to spend hours in the kitchen, or spending a lot of money on ingredients. Let us know how your roast turns out in the comments below!
