How To Cook Your Three Bird Roast
Preparing and Cooking the Goose
What you will need
A large deep meat tin with a trivet or rack if possible,
foil, salt and pepper.
Step by step guide
Preheat oven to 190C - 375F. (Gas mark 5)
Rub salt into the breast and place roast in a roasting pan on a trivet, if you do not have
suitable trivet just place in the roasting pan but drain off excess juices during cooking.
Cover pan completely with tin foil, place in preheated oven and roast depending on the size:
20 mins. per Lb.
• Try not to overcook. Remove the tin foil for the last twenty minutes of the cooking time to
allow the skin to become golden and crispy. The meat is cooked when a skewer inserted in
the side lets the juices run clear.
• Allow the roast to rest in a warm oven about 120c - 225F (Gas mark ¼) for at least
40 minutes before serving. This resting period is very important as it allows most of the juices
which have bubbled up to the surface of the meat to seep back into it, and the meat itself firms
up to make it easier to carve. Some of these juices will escape though and these should
be poured into the gravy.
• To carve, place on a flat board and slice through, as you would a loaf of bread, using a
sharp knife. Carve into thick slices.
• Use the goose fat to roast Potatoes and Parsnips to give them that special taste and
remember the drained juices make excellent stock for gravy,
Serve with roast potatoes, gravy and a selection of vegetables.
