Don’t stab and let it sit………

Never stab the meat with a fork or knife to flip it over. Punctures allow juices to escape and can lead to drying of the meat and less-flavorful. Always use a spatula or tongs when you need to turn your meats. Also always let your meat rest 5-8 minutes before slicing. This allows it a chance to sit will help the juices to disperse throughout the center of the meat, which means a more flavorful meat.

Shop early and save……..

The best time to hit the Grocery store is in the morning. That’s usually when the butcher marks down meat that is close to its sell by date. You can use the meat tonight or freeze it for later.

When making a batch of Chili……

To make a classic beef chili that’s still healthy, choose Beef that is at least 90%-lean, which fits into the USDA guidelines for lean meats. Or opt for lean and flavorful ground Turkey Breast or ground Bison instead. Also feel free to use generous amounts of spice in your chili. It’s a great way to add great flavor without any added fat or calories.

Slow Cooker hints………

* Buy cheaper meat. Tougher cheaper meats are better for slow cooking. For best results when cooking meat/chicken, always brown the ingredients in a frying pan first. This locks in the flavor and produces a true slow simmered look and flavor. Be sure to remove all the sauce, juices and bits from the bottom of the frying pan to the slow cooker.
* For even cooking, cut food into uniform-size pieces. Place firm, slow-cooking root vegetables like potatoes and carrots at the bottom of the crock and pile the meat on top.
* Keep the lid on! It is important to retain the heat when making a slow cooker meal, so avoid taking off the lid. Only remove the lid to stir or check for doneness.

No Meat on Mondays………

Never buy meat from the supermarket on Monday Mornings. It’s likely that those packages for sale were not sold over the weekend, and most shipments of fresh meat arrive on Monday afternoon or on Tuesday

Room Temperature Meat……..

All meat, except organ meats and ground beef, should stand at room temperature for a few minutes before cooking. This allows it to brown more evenly, cook faster, retain more juices, and stick less when frying.

Thaw it, use it………

 

Always use any thawed meat or poultry quickly, and do not refreeze it, since this will increase the risk of food poisoning when the meat is eaten.
