|English term or phrase: Difference of Grill vs Roast|
what is the difference between "Grill" and "Roast"?
(as in "grilled pork" vs "roasted pork")
|English translation:See explanation below...|
Grilling usually involves quite a lot of direct, radiant heat, and tends to be used for cooking quickly meat that has already been cut into slices (or other pieces)
Roasting uses more indirect, diffused heat (as in a oven), and is suitable for slower cooking of meat in a larger, whole piece.

to grill vs to roast
Many ovens have a separate grill - either electric or gas (with the heat source above the food) - which can cook things like toast, sausages, thin pieces of meat etc - quicker than in the oven. With some ovens the grill is inside, but can be turned on separately. Some foods are particularly good with grilling - but you couldn't expect to cook a big joint of meat like this!
Roasting is a much slower method of cooking. A roast joint of meat can take 1,2, even 3 hours to cook - the resulting meat is tender.
