Shop on Tuesdays……………

Try to 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 Tuesdays.

Use the tongs………….

Always use tongs when turning meat on the grill. When a fork pierces the meat, it releases some of the juices, making it dry out more quickly.

Using a skewer on the grill………….

When using foods with different cooking times (such as shrimp and beef), don’t combine them on the same skewer. Instead, make skewers of just shrimp or just beef, start cooking the beef first, and then combine them on a serving platter.

Preheat your grill…..

Give your grill enough time to preheat for optimum results. For a good sear, preheat your grill for at least 10-15 minutes. Keep in mind the weather can impact those times.

Why let meat rest before slicing………

* The juices get redistributed and reabsorbed. Your meat will be jucier.
* The fibers relax. Your meat will be more tender.
* The meat finishes cooking.

No over crowding…………….

Whether you’re baking or pan frying, it’s important to avoid crowding the pan. Similarly to when vegetables or proteins are cooked while moist, when they’re crammed into a pan they’ll steam instead of brown, which is never good.

When using skewers………..

Use two skewers instead of one when grilling or roasting to prevent your food from spinning.

Don’t cook meat from fridge-cold……….

 

Take meat out of the fridge at least half an hour to an hour beforehand. Steak, for instance, ought to be getting towards room temperature before hitting the grill; and the bigger the cut, the longer it should be out of the fridge. Meat is a muscle and needs to relax. This also means you’ll need less fuel, because you won’t be fighting a cold inside.
