Roasting is a cooking method that uses dry heat. This is another healthy cooking method apart from steaming because it requires very little oil. Slow roasting (200 degrees C) is the best to retain the moisture and the tenderness of the meat. During roasting, meats and vegetables are usually covered with butter or oil to reduce the loss of moisture by evaporation.
