Roast Perfect: time and temperature
A beef roast will take center stage on your dinner table, whether you’re serving family or a gathering of friends and colleagues. To ensure it’s just right, begin with high heat, then cook it low and slow.
High heat creates a crunchy, flavorful crust on the outside of the roast. The contrast of crisp exterior to a tender, mouthwatering interior is what our palates crave. As a general rule, follow these roasting tips for a perfectly prepared beef roast:
Preheat the oven to 450°. Cook the roast at this high heat for 15 minutes.
Reduce heat to 325°F for the remainder of your cooking time. Then use an instant-read thermometer to cook roast according to recipe instructions or to your desired doneness.
