Eliminate the guesswork this Easter with our handy Analogue Meat Thermometer. If you’re looking to celebrate Easter this year over the ultimate Sunday roast, it’s important to think about both the type of meat you’re serving but also how you’d like that cooked. Not only can a meat thermometer help avoid unwanted cases of food poisoning, they can really help elevate the quality of a meal.
If you’re planning to stay traditional this year and serve lamb, follow the below tips to ensure your meat is cooked to perfection. Once the meat is seasoned to your liking, insert the thermometer into the centre of your meat, ideally at the thickest part and then place in your preheated oven.
If you’re looking to serve your lamb rare to medium rare aim to cook to an internal temperature of around 55-65 degrees Celsius – the lower the temperature, the rarer your meat will be. If you’re not one for rare meat and prefer a more well done cut, aim for around 70—75 degrees to ensure a thoroughly cooked piece of meat.
Be sure to let your meat rest for at least 15-20 minute prior to serving as well. While the meats resting, not only will the internal temperature continue to rise, but the juices that had previously come to the surface will begin to soak back into the meat ensuring juicy, tender slices.
They’re arguably the best part of a roast dinner, and a bonus point if they’re home made too so why not give it a go this Easter with our Non-Stick 4 Cup Yorkshire Pudding tray, designed to create fluffy and crispy Yorkshires every time.
To make your batter, simply combine the below ingredients and whisk until lump free:
- -140g Plain Flour
- -4 eggs
- -200ml Milk
- -Oil / Beef Dripping for cooking
Whilst prepping your batter, drizzle some sunflower oil or beef dripping into your Yorkshire pudding tray and heat in the oven until piping hot, we recommend using one of our food timers and set a timer for around 5 minutes to ensure the oil doesn’t burn.
Once the oil is hot, gently pour in the batter, set a timer for 20 minutes and leave the puddings to cook undisturbed in the oven. It’s important to not open the oven door whilst cooking to ensure your Yorkshires can rise fully!
Made from carbon steel, our Salter roasting and baking set is a kitchen essential for your Easter Roast this year. Featuring a roasting tray and two baking trays, it caters to all of your cooking needs for a perfect roast.
Whilst your meat of choice cooks in the 38cm roasting tray, you can get to work on your perfect roast potatoes using our 38cm baking tray. Drizzle a light layer of oil on the baking tray then add your seasoned par-boiled potatoes, leave to roast in the oven for around an hour and turn frequently for perfect crispy potatoes.
The smaller 26cm square pan is perfect for roasting any vegetables, so try adding some honey roasted carrots to your plate this Easter. Simply add carrots to the pan and roast in oil, salt and pepper for 30 minutes then drizzle some honey on top and roast for a further 20 minutes. With the non-stick coating there’s no need to worry about any oils and honey sticking to your tray either, simply wash with hot soapy water after use.
