It's truly a simple product that I am sure most everyone has- a meat thermometer. Ever since I bought it for the turkey for last year's Thanksgiving, I have been using that baby for everything. Last night I made a beef roast in the oven and used the thermometer and I will tell you, I honestly had no idea how long I was supposed to cook it for, so I set my timer for 45 minutes, checked the thermometer after that and it was not quite done yet, so set it for another 30 minutes and lo and behold- I ended up with a perfect roast. Medium well.
Next time a friend calls me for advice on how to cook a London Broil or a roast of any kind, I will tell them to buy a meat thermometer. It's the best way to gauge when meat is done.
Also that thermometer is awesome when it comes to roasting chickens.
