How to Rest Meat
Rev up your dinner table with a tender, perfectly moist meat entree.
Our Secret to Perfect Meat
It's essential to let cooked meat or poultry rest, lightly covered, out of the oven for between 10 and 20 minutes (depending on its size) before carving.
Resting allows the juices to be absorbed back into the meat rather than spilling out onto the
, so the meat -- like the roast shown here -- tastes juicy and moist, not dry.
