How to cook roast in the oven

  1. First, take the meat out of the refrigerator at least an hour before you start cooking.
  2. Massage it with oil, salt and pepper. Tie it with string by placing rosemary between the meat and the tie. This operation serves to ensure that the meat maintains its shape during cooking; if you are not practical, you can have the butcher do it.
  3. Now heat two tablespoons of oil with the garlic cut in half, then brown the meat on all sides. This operation is essential to seal the fibers and prevent the juices from being released during cooking. Remember to do this for both ends as well.
  4. Raise the heat to maximum and deglaze with the white wine .
  5. Transfer the meat with the garlic cloves to a pan suitable for baking and cook the roast beef at 200 ° C for 45-50 minutes , turning it halfway through cooking. In the beginning, also add two ladles of broth, continuing to wet it every time it has dried.
  6. Once ready, wrap the roast in aluminum foil and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing. This will guarantee you a tender and not stringy roast.

Serve with baked potatoes to taste. Enjoy your meal!
