In many homes, meat recipes are the answer to what’s for dinner. Versatile in terms of food cost and the dishes you could make out of it, meat recipes can be part of the everyday menu without breaking the bank or being boring in your food preparation. Packed with protein, cooked meats offer a hearty meal whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It can be an ingredient for appetizers, be turned into a side dish or transform into the main course at the heart of the table.
Meat recipes may call for large cuts, sliced into cubes or ground. These have appropriate cooking methods so the meat cooks through properly. It may take a while, for example, to thoroughly cook a large slab of tenderloin as a stew so it has to be cut. Although one can make a burger out of minced beef, it’s much easier to handle and shape ground beef into a patty.
