Definitions for "ROASTED"
Keywords:  cooked, perforated, porous, oven, dry
Denotes a method of cooking and not necessarily the appearance of finished product. When roasted is used with a product name, the product is cooked by a dry heat method. However, such cooking may take place in the presence of humidity when added for facilitating heat transfer or efficiency. When a product is placed in a casing, the casing must be either porous or perforated to allow drainage of cooked out juices. Alternatively, a wrapping that is non-porous may be turned down or removed for the final portion of cooking.
(of meat) cooked by dry heat in an oven
