Preheat the oven to 150°C (300°F).

Give the meat the most basic of preparations: there is no need to try and remove all the skin or other bits, as these will be much easier to remove after cooking.

Salt and pepper on each side.

Stage 3 - 3 min.

If you do not have a roasting bag, you can use a casserole dish or stew-pot with a lid.

For the meat, choose a cheap cut, like braising steak (chuck or blade) or shoulder.
