the size of the food). To do this, turn the “Moisture

Note: the longer you roast the meat in the pan, the
shorter the roasting time in the oven.

– Place the meat on a preheated plate in the oven.

– Larger pieces of meat (e.g. entrecote, roast beef

or leg of lamb) need 2 - 4 hours).
Smaller pieces of meat (steak or diced chicken)
take 30 - 60 minutes.

– You can reduce the temperature to 60 °C towards

the end of the cooking time. For larger pieces
of meat, you can extend the cooking time by
2 - 4 hours or for smaller pieces you can extend it
