Last month, 20 Sunday Supper tastemakers visited Certified Angus Beef® brand’s culinary center in Wooster, Ohio, for a weekend of cooking classes and fine food. They brought home plenty of holiday roasting tips. The chefs there, including MIchael Ollier who provided expert roasting tips, taught them much about how to select a cut of beef to fit the occasion and then how to roast it perfectly. They got a big hand from Certified Angus Beef® brand’s free #RoastPerfect app. We are celebrating the app today.
We are also sharing some of the expert knowledge the Sunday Supper tastemakers picked up in Ohio, and not a moment too soon before big holiday meals. At this time of year, holiday roasting recipes come in handy, too.
From Brianne at Cupcakes and Kale Chips: “The Boneless Rib Roast and Tenderloin Roast are your special occasion roasts. Both are a bit pricier than other roasts, but are incomparable when it comes to flavor. The Prime Rib Roast is the most impressive – roasted with or without bones (without the bones it is known as a Ribeye Roast), it is juicy and tender with plenty of marbling imparting a rich flavor. The Tenderloin is lean, but with a succulent and refined flavor. The Strip Roast and Top Sirloin Roast are a bit more economical, but still with plenty of flavor and juiciness. The Tri-Tip Roast is sometimes hard to find, but if you can get your hands on one, it has amazing flavor. For leaner options, try the Top Round Roast and Ball Tip Roast.”
From Renee at Magnolia Days: “Rubs add flavor. It’s incredible how spices on the outside can make every bite of a roast so much better. And, oh heavenly drippings. You know the puddle of goodness on the tray that accumulates under a sliced roast? Well, the puddle from Sriracha Herb Roast is divine. I’d soak up every drop with some crusty bread.”
From Marion at LIfe Tastes Good: “No matter what type of roast you are making, you will want to season it well with salt and pepper or your choice of rub, and also get a good sear on the outside. Searing can be achieved on a grill, in a screaming hot cast-iron skillet, or by blasting it with high heat in the oven. I don’t care which option you choose to sear your roast. Each will yield good results. But whatever you do, DON’T SKIP THIS STEP! Searing is essential to roasting your way to a tasty holiday! Refer to the app for searing times and temperatures.”
From Amy at kimchi MOM: “We learned that subcutaneous fat is the fat under the skin. This is usually the white fat cap surrounding or capping the muscle. Trim or not to trim? This layer can be trimmed, but you can leave at least 1/4 inch of the fat cap to help develop a flavorful crust. The fat cap also allows the roast to self-baste while cooking, but this is not where the flavor comes from. The intramuscular fat is the marbling that you see throughout the muscle or meat. This is what gives the beef its palatability – flavor, tenderness, and juiciness. Intermuscular fat is simply the fat between the muscle or “seam fat” and this fat generally defines the cuts of the beef. This can be trimmed.”
From Cindy at Cindy’s Recipes and Writings: “Remember to use a rack when roasting to ensure proper air flow.” (Check out Cindy’s blog for her mustard-rub take on tri-tip roast.)
