You can use the honey or not.

It's good with some roasted carrots and onions.

Re: Paleo: - There's an oven in my house! What can I roast

I did a chuck roast over the weekend that was pretty yummy.

Make a paste with ancho chilis, cloves, cinnamon, garlic, thyme, marjoram, oregano, black pepper, and white wine vinegar, together with enough water to make a thick but pourable liquid.

Poke holes in a chuck roast and stud with bacon and slivered almonds.

Sear the roast in a large dutch oven. Remove to a plate while you cook the chili paste for about five minutes, stirring so it doesn't stick. Put the meat back in, cover, and roast at 325 degrees (F) for about two hours.

Chop about a pound of potatoes into large chunks (about two bites each). Add to the pot, along with a little water if the roast is getting too dry. Cook for another hour, or until the meat is very tender.

Sweet potatoes or other starchy tubers would probably work as a potato substitute, as would other root veggies like carrots and onions.

The leftovers, if any, are good as filling for tortillas or as a base for a steak chili.

Recipe from Diana Kennedy, The Essential Cuisines of Mexico.

Re: Paleo: - There's an oven in my house! What can I roast

Sweet potatoes
Rutabaga
Turnips
Parsnips
Brussels Sprouts
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Green beans
Tomatoes
Carrots
Apples
Onions
Chicken
Beef
Pork Shoulder
Turkey
Meatballs
Spaghetti Squash
Butternut Squash
Acorn Squash
Garlic

...Just to name a few.


OK, I don't have time to put details for each but googling roasted+food name will bring up scads of recipes. As a general rule I prefer my roasted vegetables to have crispy edges so I usually leave it in past the recommended time. Experiment and enjoy.

Re: Paleo: - There's an oven in my house! What can I roast

Beef Ribs/short ribs, just made them yesterday, mmmhhhmmm sooo good.

Here's what I did:

6lbs of beef ribs, put a spice mixture of coarse ground black pepper, garlic powder, and oregano on them.

Line a roasting dish with foil (easier clean up) and put a 1-2 cups of whatever liquid you want in there (I use ACV, water, or beef broth.)

Put the beef ribs in the dish and cover the dish with another piece of foil. Place in oven set to 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Remove the foil and keep them in there for another 5 minutes to firm up a bit and then take them out.

Let them rest for 5-10 minutes, or however long your willpower enables you to, then have at it with some veggies. I sometimes include onions, carrots, and garlic in the roasting dish alongside the beef ribs, but you could try other stuff too.

I never tire of this and make it pretty often. I love fatty meat, as well as some vegetables to sop up the grease leftover from the cooking.

I did a leg of lamb last night. Didn't read the part where you turn the heat down and let it bake after having it at 450 for 20 min... Turned out a little more raw than I indended, had to put it back in...

Re: Paleo: - There's an oven in my house! What can I roast

Is there like a rule of thumb?

You can roast cored fruit whole, you can't roast citrus fruit? (As an example, I just made that rule up.)

Hmm, I guess anything I buy I'll just whack in the oven.

How long do roasted vegetables/fruit keep in refridgerators?

Cookbooks work great for this sort of thing.

Don't roast the book though. Read it.
