Braising Meats……………………..

Heavily marbled meat is the best for braising. Look for lamb or pork shoulders or shanks, beef chuck roasts, or briskets. They have plenty of fat to keep the meat juicy and tons of collagen that will break down into gelatin and give a rich, silky texture.

Freeze meat in a marinade……………..

Save time and have them in a pinch – Stash meal-size portions in freezer bags with a simple marinade (we like grated ginger with some toasted sesame oil and soy sauce). Thaw in the fridge in the a.m. so dinner is ready to cook when you get home. For an easy meal, roast with vegetables on a baking sheet at 400°F.

Cold Water works………………..

To ensure more of the meat winds up on your grill than stuck to your hands into cold water before molding your meat. Heat from your hands can make the ground beef stickier and more difficult to shape into patties.

When using your Crock Pot……………..

Brown the meat first. Searing the meat first will produce delicious flavors when high heat interacts with the proteins. It will also give the meat that caramelized skin and look even more delicious when you remove it from the crock pot. Sear your meats in a heavy duty pan, like a cast iron skillet.

Completely dry meat before cooking……………

Whether it’s roasted chicken or seared scallops, drying them ensures you’ll get a crisp, golden skin that won’t stick to the pan. Pat them dry with paper towels or let them air-dry in the cooler for a few hours before cooking them.

Don’t Rinse the Meat…………

While salmonella and other bacterial scares may tempt you to give your raw meat a quick rinse, it’s not recommended. For one thing, water won’t remove many dangerous pathogens in the first place. For another, running water over raw poultry and other meat may also contaminate your sink and other kitchen surfaces with bacteria. If you’re worried about foodborne illness, the best measure to take is cooking your meat thoroughly and testing it with a meat thermometer—at least 145° F for steaks, roasts, chops, and fish; 160° F for ground beef or pork; and 165° F for poultry.

Soups on…………………..

Soups are easy to make in large batches, and are one of the most freezer-friendly dishes around. So, double up on ingredients, grab a larger pot and make two meals instead of one. Let hot soups cool at room temperature, uncovered for 1 to 1/2 hours — or until almost at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until cold. Soups can last in the fridge for up to three days. Freeze soups after they have been chilled overnight in the fridge. Soups will last up to two months in the freezer.

Tongs only…………

When smoking or grilling sausages, always use tongs or a spatula. Never a fork. Piercing allows the juices to bleed out.

Gingerbread added to Stews……………………………

* Thank you to Anne T. for passing this one along!

I have never heard or even thought about adding this to meat dishes! Add gingerbread cookies to meat dishes. – Believe it or not, adding crumbled gingerbread or gingersnap cookies to slow cooker meat dishes like beef stew, pot roast and sauerbraten is a secret ingredient that chefs use. The gingersnaps flavor the sauce and give the pan juices this amazing texture.
