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.

Add gingerbread cookies to meat dishes…..

Believe it or not, adding crumbled gingerbread or gingersnap cookies to meat dishes like beef stew, pot roast and sauerbraten is a well-kept secret of in-the-know slow cooker pros. It’s really cool because the gingersnaps flavor the sauce and give the pan juices this amazing texture.

 

* I came across this and I had not ever tried it or heard of it. I found it interesting and thought I would pass it along.

Let it rest…..

After you’re finished cooking your steak, let the meat rest. Don’t be so quick to cut meat that’s fresh off the grill or pan, since doing so will spill out all of its delicious juices. Let it rest for 5–10 minutes and you’ll secure yourself a juicy slab of steak.

First In, First Out…..

Rotate your perishables and always use older items first in order to not waste any of your perishable items. It’s a good idea to do this with meats you currently have in the freezer also. Good idea for canned goods too.

Wrap and Save…..

Buy a whole package of meat or poultry and wrap individual portions in freezer-safe paper; label each with the date and contents.

Relax…..

Never cook meat that is straight from the fridge and still cold. Give the meat a chance to come to room temperature and ‘relax’ before cooking.

Take Stock…..

Always make stock in a large quantity and freeze it in plastic bags. That way, when you want to make a nice soup or boil veggies, you can simply pull the bag out of the freezer.

Choosing quality meat…..

You can easily spot good quality meat by the way it’s butchered. Look for smooth cuts that are uniformly sized, and stay away from jagged edged meat. This is especially the case when buying poultry. Lower grade poultry are not always butchered well, which means care is not taken when removing joints and bones.
