My hormones are at play. Opened up the freezer and took out the first piece of red meat I saw--a baby prime rib roast (less than 1kg). It's dainty size allowed me to pan sear the two main sides and then pop it into the oven. I don't think I'll do roasts "the usual way" again after this. This is the new usual way.
Peppercorn and garlic encrusted roast,
Red wine and onion sauce
