"When it doubt 350 it out"

That is what I always say to classmates when they ask me the temperature of the oven and I do not know the answer. 350 is usually the standard temp the oven is set to unless you’re trying to get a sear then go 400+ or a slow braise which you’d do around 300-325 or a really long roast for tough cuts, then you can go as low as 250. 27 more words
