As a side note: Who cooks a roast at 200C? That's way too hot. 160C or 150C is a much better temperature for something like a roast.

Onto the topic: Homework problems where the poster just asks for the answer bother me--because it's possible I might have to work with this guy if he goes on to program professionally. Knowing where to look and how to ask the question is indeed an important skill, but you still need a significant amount of "in-the-field" knowledge to be proficient in anything.

    Eeeeeewww! Then it would be cooked all the way through! That would be horrible.

    Seared on the outside, rare in the middle. It is The One True Way.

      I find most people I know think a roast is something you stick in the oven for hours, baste it occasionally, let it rest and hope it doesn't come out dry and nasty. The lower heat helps it not dry out as much.

      But I agree with you, a nice sear and a little bit of hot oven time is really all that's needed. :)
