Preserving the tenderness of fast-cooking meat
THE SOUND OF THE MEAT THAT GRILLS YOU MISSED? WE GIVE YOU FEW TIPS TO BE SAFE TO HAVE A MEAT TENDER AT ALL TIMES!
To preserve the tenderness and flavor of meat for grilling, stir-frying or roasting, think of R as Rest.
Before cooking the meat, remember to take the meat out of the refrigerator long enough before cooking it. Thanks to this reset at room temperature, the meat is not attacked by a too large difference in temperature at the time of cooking.
After cooking, it is essential to let the meat rest. So the heat and juices are evenly distributed, allowing the meat to relax.
For small pieces (steaks, cobbles, ribs or cutlets), the rest time must be equal to the cooking time.
For large pieces (roast, square or leg of lamb), the resting time is ideally half the cooking time, under a sheet of aluminum foil to keep the heat by turning the piece of meat, so that the juices are evenly distributed.
