  • Cook it at 350 and cover it with foil. If you want it pink in the middle cook for about 3 hours. well done 5 hours. It should be fine even if frozen solid when you start.

  • NO!!!!! Never try to cook partially frozen meat! Your best bet is to place it in a bowl in the sink with the tiniest stream of water running over it and another bowl of water weighing it down. This is the easiest way to defrost without ruining your meat.

    After its soft and floppy again,a little more than an hour before dinnertime, pat it dry with paper towels, salt and pepper both sides and leave it on the counter for 15 min.
    Get an ovenproof pan nice and hot (med-hi) on the stove top, add a little oil, brown meat on all sides.
    Add a couple TBSP butter to the pan and put it in a hot (425) oven.
    Baste it with the butter every 10-15 min.
    Use a probe thermometer to check for doneness (or learn the trick the pros use; the hand!).
    I like mine rare to med rare, 135*. Good Luck!

  • I'd let it sit in some water first in a bowl to defrost it a little then in the oven.

  • Heat defrosting creates dry tough meat, FYI.

  • If you cook it frozen you will ruin it. Either thaw it in some water or make something different and cook the roast tomorrow.

  • Try to thaw it in some water before hand
