Cooking Instructions

  1. Tie roasts into compact shape with butcher string and sear all sides in a small amount of hot oil in a heavy pan on stovetop. 
  2. Insert meat thermometer into thickest part of roast, without touching fat or bone, and place fat-side up in a shallow roasting pan. Do not cover, and do not add water. 
  3. Roast at high heat (425°F) for 15 minutes, then reduce to listed temperature for optimal juiciness. 
  4. Remove 10°F shy of your doneness preference, and loosely tent with aluminum foil. Let roast stand for 15 to 20 minutes until desired doneness is reached before carving.
