How To Get The Perfect Roast Every Time?

How Do I Get The Best Roast Potatoes?

For the perfect roast potatoes, you need to choose the right spud. There are various potato variants in Australia that turn into a good roast potato. These variants include the Dutch cream, Coliban, Desiree and Sebago potatoes.

Once you have the right potatoes, it is time to boil them for a short period of time. Peel the potatoes and put them in some slightly salted water. Just boil them for approximately ten minutes, but make sure the potatoes are not completely soft or falling apart.

Next, take out the boiled potatoes and use a healthy oil to cover the spuds in. Goose fat is also a good option for the perfect roast potatoes. Then, add your choice of oil or goose fat to a roasting pan and place it in a preheated oven on 200 degrees Celsius for approximately five minutes. Once five minutes have passed, add the potatoes to the oil, just make sure you don't burn yourself during this process. Finally, place the roasting tray in the oven and leave the potatoes to roast for thirty minutes. After thirty minutes, turn them over and let roast for another thirty minutes. Once the potatoes are cooked, do not forget to season with some salt.

How Do I Get The Perfect Roast Pork With Crackling?

First, grab your pork and remove all the packaging. Take some paper towel and dry the roast as much as possible. Then, take a small knife and score the meat at intervals of 1 centimetre. While you do this, make sure you do not make any cuts in the meat. Once this is done, leave the roast in the first for at least an hour. You can also leave it in the fridge overnight.

To roast the pork, grab a wire rack and place the pork on it. Then, add the pork to the rack and place it in the sink. Put some boiling water in a jug and poor it all over the rind. Make sure to pat dry the pork again with some paper towel when you are done.

Once the pork is completely dry, grab a little bit of vegetable oil and some salt and make sure all the scores are covered. Once the oil and salt have penetrated the scores, put the roast and the wire rack in a bigger roasting tray. Put it into the oven and cook at 240 degrees Celsius.

To get the perfect crackling, you must take the roast weight and time into consideration. Most pork requires about 50 minutes for the perfect crackling. However, roasts that weigh more than 2 kilograms may require ten minutes less for the crackling.

Once the crackling is on point, you want to turn the oven down to 180 degrees Celsius. The roast should be cooked for a half an hour per kilogram. So, if your roast is 2 kilograms, you will need to cook it in the oven for an hour.

To ensure the pork cuts easily, we recommend leaving the roast to rest for at least ten minutes when it comes out of the oven. Please note that the roast will be extremely hot still, so make sure you take precautions when you cut your roast.

Finally, some ovens may be a little inaccurate when it comes down to their displayed temperature. If you experienced problems with roasts in the past, get yourself a good oven thermometer. Doing so enables you to double-check the temperature inside the oven, which in turn can avoid problems.
