Need immediate advice on roasting at two different things at same temp
Hi, I have a pork shoulder in the oven at 325, needs another two hours. I want to roast some peeled, cut japanese sweet potatoes, but they should really be roasted at a higher temp. I don't want to wait until the roast is out because I won't have enough time. Will I ruin them if I start them at the 325 and then kick it up for another 15 mins or so when the roast is out?
That's fine. You may not even need to do the final roasting at a higher temp, as long as the potatoes are in there long enough. Whenever I have my oven on, I try to remember to toss in a coupld of potatoes to bake, regardless of temp. They always turn out fine, no matter the temp.
I HAVE learned the hard way, though, not to bake sweet and savory items at the same time. I had an apple crisp that picked up onion and garlic notes from the meat I was roasting below it.
