So exactly how long to cook a roast? The best cuts of meat for roasts are brisket, rump, pork shoulder or top round. Each of these types of meat is tough and will require a long cooking time to make them tender.
The roast will need to be seasoned to add some flavor and help the meat keep its juiciness. It should be sprinkled with salt and pepper and rubbed down with olive oil or melted butter. It can also be seasoned with garlic powder, parsley, minced onion, rosemary, or sage. It is also delicious to add chopped carrots, potatoes and any other vegetable such as tomatoes, bell peppers, etc.
The easiest way to cook a roast is in the oven. The temperature should be set to 250 to 300 degrees. This cooking temperature will produce a nice, tender roast. The roast will need to cook for three to four hours and about every 45 minutes it should be basted and turned. It will not hurt to cook it for longer than this by about an hour because the longer it cooks the more tender it will be.
Delicious and nutritious as meat is a great source of protein, and B vitamins.
