6 Ways to Cook a Roast this Christmas

Despite Australia's scorching summers, many of us are still keen on getting a traditional roast cooking for Christmas.

Whether it's lamb, turkey, ham or chicken, you'll probably find a meat dish on the tables of most families come Christmas.

If you're tired of making the same old roast year in, year out, or if this is your first year cooking for you and your loved ones, try some of our favourite roast recipes on Lifestyle FOOD.

1. Cheat's Glazed Ham

We all have our preferences when it comes to glazed ham - some like mustard, others like honey, some like a mixture of both - but Donna's recipe uses some of those heavenly Christmas spices, like cloves and cinnamon, to bring a new dimension to her holiday ham! 

2. Overnight Roasted Pork Shoulder

If you want to serve this one for Christmas lunch, you'll have to put it on the night before - but that's a plus because the majority of work will be done while you're sleeping! Similarly, if you want to serve it up on Christmas nigh, starting it that same morning is advised. This Jamie Oliver recipe also comes with a side of fennel and potato gratin, if you're into that!

3. Pot-Roasted Chicken with Rice and Lentils

This recipe is basically a one-pot wonder, but with a few extra touches from celebrity chef, Matt Moran. It's simple, hearty but still fresh enough to serve on a warm Christmas day. 

4. Slow Cooked Rack of Lamb

This recipe by Neil Perry has a middle eastern twist with a sprinkling of sumac and tahini to top it off. A rack of lamb is often best served to smaller parties to ensure everyone gets a good serve!

5. Jamie's Easy Turkey

Who better to ask about cooking an American favourite for an Aussie Christmas than a famous Brit! Another Jamie Oliver gem, his easy turkey is basically herbs, a bit of veg for stuffing and a lot of butter! 

6. Beef Topside Roast

This simple beef roast and horseradish side sauce is a great option for those who love a classic meat and three-veg dinner. While the recipe recommends grilling some beets with your beef, you can easily opt for your favourite roast vegetable sides.
