My nana came up to auckland a few weeks ago and gave me a big bag of meat for the deep freeze and in it is a big Rib Roast which hubby has taken out yesterday to have for tea tonight, my question is How? Ive never done roast anything before as i ALWAYS stuff it up. Any help would be so much appreciated! :)

How heavy is it? I would cook it on about 160 degrees for 30 mins for every 500g. It will be beautiful I love rib roasts!

Hi there, thanks for that. There is no weight measurements on it as its from the grandads homekill business. But i put it on my kitchen scales and its 1. 5kgs.
Do i need to add anything to the roasting dish when cooking it or does it just go in by itself into the roasting pan? sorry if these questions seem silly, but i have no idea. :)

You don't have to put anything in but I like to do roast beef with a crust of wholegrain mustard and horseradish sauce mixed together and smeared over it. Also crack some pepper over it too. I think you would find it would be cooked in about 2. 5 hours and then just take it out of the oven and rest it on a dish (cover with foil) for 15 mins or so before carving. The juices that come out can be made into a gravy. Yum!
