Toss Out The Roasting Rack

We see it all the time on TV and in books. Place your roast, your chicken or Turkey on a roasting rack so you can collect all the juices, right? Well how is this for a great tip. You want to collect those great juices and also have a super, and we mean super flavorful side dish at the same time? Try this...

  • Toss the rack. Well don't toss it, just don't use it for this.
  • In the bottom of the roasting pan place a bunch of roughly chopped carrots, onions and celery, place your meat on it, add one cup of water and cover tightly and roast.
  • Vary it, try using turnips, carrots and some green scallions.
  • You can use just about any kind of root vegatable for this also.

The vegetable will add a wonderful flavor to your juices, for an even more awesome gravy. Plus, you can take the veggies out and you amaze your guests or family with an awesome side dish.
