No Slip, Mess Free Tip for Carving a Roast {Tuesday Tip}

On the weekend, my Mom had the family over to her place for a delicious roast beef dinner. She was excited to try making a roast with her new convection oven.

Part of my birthday gift from her this year was her old oven. That may seem like an odd gift, but for me, it was perfect! I finally have a glass top stove - and let me tell you, this is exciting!

I digres....

When you carve a roast, do you end up having a mess all over your counter top?

I don't know about you, but when I carve a roast (ok, I don't do that often, but when I do...), the cutting board slips all over the counter.

My Mom shared with me her tip for carving a roast beef in order to avoid a mess and to prevent slippage.....

First, put a layer of "rug hug" (you know the sticky padded material that prevents your throw rug from slipping around) on the counter.

Next, put a cookie sheet down to catch all of the spills.

Then, line the cookie sheet with a layer of paper towel and if you like, a tea towel (I honetly think my Mom does this to make it look prettier!).

Finally, you are ready to carve your roast!

Thank you Mom, for a delicious birthday prime-rib dinner and thank you for my "new" oven! What a treat!

What kind of cut of beef is your favourite for making a roast beef dinner?
