Moving right along in our Kitchen Tip Series (check out Tips 1-5 here).
Tip #6: Watch for Sales
Buy meat when it goes on sale close to the “use by date” or special promo. If you do use a special promo or package deal, don’t be afraid to talk to the meat counter and see if they can customize those deals for you. It never hurts to ask.
Tip #7: Freeze for Later
Find a great sale and bummed you can’t use it all by the “use by date”? Meat and most hard or shredded cheeses typically freeze very well. Stock up and save by tossing them in the freezer for later in the month.
Tip #8: Try Something Different
Try some different cuts of meat that you don’t normally use. You might find a great recipe for a less expensive cut of meat or new ingredient on allrecipes.com
or other sites.
Tip #9: Not All Roasts Come in Chuck or Loin
reminds us that there are a wide range of cuts of meats that pack a lot of flavor and are nothing to be afraid of… if you know how to handle them. So, venture over to that brisket
and give it a try.
Tip #10: Tackle Tough, Don’t Avoid It
Miss Leah encourages you to try Shoulder, Butts, Bostons, Rolled, Rump, Legs and all other things on the front and back because they are full of flavor.
And while these can be tougher pieces of meat, she has got your answer… Brine baby, brine.
Next week, Tips 11-15 will focus on more meat techniques that will keep your family asking for more!
