We give you the recipe for the dead roast as found in the famous Artusi book. The dead roast is simply a roast cooked in a casserole instead of in the oven, and this particular name seems to derive from the fact that it ultimately has a brown color reminiscent of mourning, rather than the rich golden red color of a spit roast. However, it is a very simple and very tasty preparation, and perfect when there are problems with the oven.
