Satisfyingly slow roasts

Looking for a recipe where the oven does the work? We hear you. These recipes will take you mere minutes to prepare, then sit back, relax or get ready for your guests while it cooks.

Pork and lamb feature heavily, with an idea for beef, too. See our articles on the best cuts for roast pork, lamb and beef.

So, the next question is – what are you going to do with all that time?
