WATCH: Lamb cooks inside a car, so can your kids

WE’VE all heard the saying “hot enough to fry an egg”, but how about cooking a roast?

Celebrity Chef Matt Moran has ‘overcooked’ a lamb loin to demonstrate the oven-like temperature inside a car, while urging parents to ensure no kids bake in their vehicle.

More than 5,000 children are left unattended in cars in Australia each year.


“As a father I was absolutely gobsmacked,” Moran says.

“I couldn’t believe it, and I think Australia needs to know it is not safe at any point in time to leave a kid in a car – it is like an oven.”

To prove his point, Moran cooked the lamb in his ‘Unconventional Oven’ – an SUV parked at Bondi Beach.
