2 Bumps

Meat - roast - grrrrrrr

Recipe said 30-35 mins on 425. Pulled it out and it's all bloody. Fabulous. How long does it take a 2.5 lb roast to cook through at 425?

  • Maybe an hour or hour and a half.

  • I would cook it 30-35 minutes a pound. And I would use a meat thermometer to make sure it reaches the correct temp.

  • Crap another half hour. Joy. Stupid me I just trusted the recipe. Should have double-checked.

  • get an instant read thermometer- less than 10$

  • Definitely invest in a thermometer. You have no way of knowing if your oven has hot/cold spots or if it's not hitting the temp it says it is.

  • I put mine in the crock pot and let it cook for hours. Yummy.

  • that sure seems like a short amount of time for your recipe at least 1 hour - 1 hour & a half depends on your oven also
