How to Roast Garlic

Leave a Comment

Roasted garlic makes a great bread spread, especially on French bread. You can use it in mashed potatoes, use it as part of a sauce, or just give anything a sweet roasted garlic flavor.  The best part, though, is that it's easy!

To roast a whole head of garlic, do the following:

  1. Preheat an oven to 400F.
  2. Peel away the outer layers of a head of garlic, but leave the skins of the cloves intact.
  3. Cut off about 1/4 inch of the cloves, exposing the individual clove surface.
  4. Place the head of garlic in the middle of some aluminum foil, exposed side up, and fold the edges upward to make sort of a bowl
  5. Drizzle about 3 or 4 tablespoons of olive oil on the cloves, and close the top of the foil bowl. Ensure that the cloves are coated well.
  6. Bake at 400F for about 30 to 35 minutes, or until the cloves are very soft.
You can eat the cloves as they are or mash them with a fork to use as a spread or pizza topping.

You can also roast peeled cloves without them being attached to the head. The procedure is basically the same, with adjustments being made to the cooking time and amount of olive oil used, depending on how may cloves you are roasting.

A standing rib roast is a cut of beef from the rib section, which is one of the eight primal cuts of beef. The entire rib section is comprised of ribs 6 through 12 of the animal; a standing rib roast can be comprised of anywhere from 2 to 7 ribs. It is given the name "standing" because it is most often roasted in a standing position, that is, with the ribs stacked vertically. A standing rib roast, if sliced when uncooked, would yield a number of rib eye steaks.A standing rib roast sliced into portions is often known as "prime rib". Contrary to some accounts, the designation "prime" does not refer to the USDA grade of the carcass, but was used to describe the best or most desirable part of the rib section, even before the inception of meat grading [1]. Another theory is that the term prime rib derives from "primal rib".A slice of prime rib from a standing rib roast, topped (on the right side) with mushrooms.A slice of standing rib roast will include portions of the so-called "eye" of the rib as well as the outer, fat-marbled muscle (spinalis dorsali) known as the "lip" or "cap".The traditional preparation for a standing rib roast is to rub the outside of the roast with salt and seasonings and slow-roast with dry heat.Roast beef (also known as a roast) is a cut of beef which is roasted in an oven.
