Remove the roast from the freezer and place on roasting pan. Place in oven and turn to 80 °C. (175 °F.)
Calculate the cooking time to about 6 ½ hours per pound (for a roast of 1,5 kg it will be about 10 hours). After approximately 2 hours in oven, insert a meat thermometer. The meat is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 65-75°C.
