Cook Talk

Small prime rib roast
I have a 5 pound roast how long does it take the roast to reach 140 degree at 325? I Am going to roast it first at 450 for 20 .im
Total cooking time about 90 minutes if bone in.

The new ovens are so well insulated that the sear and turn down method does not work well for them, because they dont turn down fast enough. In that case, low cook first, then turn up to finish the crust.

Meat that comes out of the oven at 120 and is allowed to stand for the essential 20-60 minutes will finish, at 130 medium rare all the way through, a bit more on the ends. 140 out of the oven would give you medium well to well to finish, which would be a pity...
