right do i cover it with foil ? i am following the oven instructions as far as heat and time is concerned ,oh and its topside smile

I wouldn't cover it with foil, as you will end up steaming rather than roasting the meat.

Only reason to put foil on top is if it starts to burn before it's properly cooked through.

Seal it first, put the pan on the hob heat up the oil and just brown the outsides, will keep the juices in and make the meat moister.
