Essential Tips

  • Suggested roasting times per 500g for: Rib eye/scotch fillet, rump, sirloin, fillet/tenderloin, standing rib roast, rolled rib beef roast. Cook at 200ºC. Rare 15-20 min per 500g, Medium 20-25 min per 500g, Well done 25-30 min per 500g.
  • Judging your roast’s degree of 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.
  • You can also use tongs to test the roast’s doneness. Gently prod or squeeze the roast – rare is very soft, medium rare is soft, medium is springy but soft, medium well is firm and well done is very firm.
  • Check the temp when the estimated cooking time is a little way from up. Take larger roasts out of the oven just short of the goal, as the larger roasts and bone in roasts to tend cook further and go up just a little in temperature as they rest
