  • 400 g reindeer roast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper


  • Defrost the reindeer roast according to the instructions (if you are using frozen meat).
  • Dry the surface of the meat, sprinkle salt and pepper all over. Leave the meat at room temperature for half an hour.
  • Take one clove of garlic and flatten with a knife blade. Preheat the oven to 125C.
  • Heat oil and butter in a pan. Add the garlic clove and herbs to the butter. Swirl for a moment to release the flavours.
  • Fry the meat to colour the surfaces. Tilt the pan occasionally and use a spoon to drizzle the oil over the reindeer roast.
  • Stick a thermometer into the meat and place the roast in the oven. When the meter reads 57C, the reindeer is juicy inside.
  • Wrap the meat in foil for 10 minutes rest. Slice Reindeer Roast crosswise and place it on a serving platter.
