Should I remove strings on rib roast?
« on: 01/07/12 18:15:33 »
Just picked up a 7lb roast. Going to do it in the SRG tomorrow. It is 3 bone rib roast, and it is tied. Should I remove the strings before I throw it in the SRG? Going to do it with the horseradish crust, I'll take some pics and post them when it is done. Thanks for the help.

You're better off leaving the strings on while cooking the roast.  They hold the roast together so that they are not sections that are lose and cook more than others.

If my pork roasts aren't already tied (usually boneless), I'll wrap one or two strings around it & leave the string for the whole cook.  Keeps everything nice & tight.  BUT, I will usually rub in all the nooks & crannies before tying (or sometimes re-tying).

Anyway, the string won't hurt a thing.
