Braising…..

The key to braising is to cook the meat slowly – at a low temperature and for a long time. Braising can be done on the stovetop over low heat or in the oven between 120º and 150ºC. The heat should be low enough to maintain a very gentle simmer – never allow a braise to boil, as doing so will dry out the meat.

Use a digital thermometer when cooking meat…..

When roasting meat in the oven or cooking a steak on the grill, it’s incredibly easy to overcook it, leading to dry and bland-tasting meat that no one enjoys. Keep on top of the temperature by using a digital food probe thermometer.

Freeze…..

If you place your meat in the freezer for a bit, it’ll be easier to cut those wafer thin slices for carpaccio. Works great for thin cuts for Fajitas!

Enhance Grill Marks…..

Add a little honey to your marinade or sauce when grilling. The sugar in the honey caramelizes to help create gourmet-looking grill marks. You can even use this trick when cooking foods on the stove! Love those grill marks!

Also remember to use tongs or a spatula when flipping your meats. No forks, you’ll lose all that flavor from the puncture marks.

Let it rest…..

Never underestimate the power of resting. Most people cooking worry about the meat going cold or don’t leave enough time for resting. This is a huge mistake. Not resting meat means that it can bleed over a plate, making it look unappetizing. It can also result in tough meat rather than tender, rested meat. Enjoy!

Don’t trim all the Fat…..

Fat imparts so much flavor into the meat. Cooks who cut the fat off before cooking will end up with drier and blander tasting food. If you don’t want to eat fat, always remove it after cooking and not before.

Healthier Meat…..

Trim excess fat off meats and eat chicken or turkey without the skin. Always buy lean cuts of meat and choose a healthy cooking method, like broiling, roasting, stir-frying, or grilling.

To flip or not to flip…..

In general, the fewer times you flip something, the better (once is ideal for most meats). If the meat is stuck to the grill, let it cook more — it will unstick itself when it’s ready for flipping.

Room temperature…..

Don’t put cold meat right on the grill. Bring ingredients to room temperature before you cook; they will then cook more evenly and quickly. If you need to, plan your meals so you leave 30 minutes for meat to sit on the counter.
