Tips

You can judge the degree of your roast's doneness using a meat thermometer. The internal temperature for: Rare – 55-60ºC, Medium rare – 60-65ºC, Medium – 65-70ºC, Medium well – 70-75ºC, Well done – 75ºC.
Resting a roast for about 10 to 20 minutes before carving gives the juices in the meat a chance to redistribute, giving a moister and tender result.
