If you’ve cooked a good piece of beef over the holidays, you can reheat without drying it out. The idea is to moisturize the roast as it reheats. Start by wrapping washed lettuce leaves around the roast, and wrap aluminum foil around the whole thing—pinch it closed.

Heat the oven to 425° to 475°F and put the roast in for 2 to 10 minutes (depending on the size of the roast). By flash-heating it, you get the meat warm without overcooking it.
