Cooking With Meat: Getting The Most From Your Protein
If you're a meat-eater it can be easy to fall into the trap of cooking the same way time after time. At HelloFresh, we encourage people to step out of the cooking comfort zone and try their favourite ingredients in new ways. Some of the ways you can cook meat in a way that's still full of flavour but will add some excitement to your dinner include:
Barbecuing: Brits are known for their love of barbecues. Fire up the grill and cook marinated steaks, sausages, lamb chops, or chicken skewers for that classic English barbecue experience. Don't forget to add some grilled vegetables and serve with a side of fresh salads.
Roasting: Roasting is a classic for a reason. This versatile method works well for larger cuts of meat like whole chickens, beef roasts, or leg of lamb. Season the meat with herbs, spices, and marinades, then slow-roast it in the oven for juicy and flavorful results.
Stir-frying: Stir-frying is a quick and convenient way to cook meat, particularly when combined with colourful vegetables and Asian-inspired sauces. Slice the meat thinly and cook it over high heat, tossing it with your favourite stir-fry ingredients.
Slow-cooking: You will appreciate the tenderness and rich flavours achieved through slow-cooking methods like braising or using a slow cooker. Create hearty stews, casseroles, or pulled pork by allowing the meat to simmer slowly with aromatic ingredients for hours, resulting in deliciously tender meals.
Grilling: A bit easier than barbecuing, grilling indoors on a stovetop grill pan or electric grill is another option. Cook chicken breasts, lamb cutlets, or fish fillets with a smoky char and serve them alongside grilled vegetables or salads.
Pan-frying: Pan-frying is another versatile technique suitable for various meats. Cook your favourite cuts of beef, pork, or veal in a hot skillet with a little oil, achieving a caramelised crust on the outside while retaining the juiciness inside.
Oven-baking: From meatballs and meatloaf to casseroles and baked chicken, oven-baking is a convenient method that allows for easy preparation and delicious results. Use a combination of seasonings, breadcrumbs, and vegetables to enhance the flavours in an easy, quick way.
A Guide To Meat Seasoning
Seasoning meat is an important part to cooking because it enhances flavour, balances tastes, adds aromatics, improves texture, allows you to create flavours to suit your preferences, allows you to try new flavours and carries on culinary traditions. It's a key step in cooking that can elevate the enjoyment of meat dishes and create memorable dining experiences.
Experimenting with different combinations of herbs, spices, and seasonings can help you to create your own signature flavour profiles to match yours or your families taste. Remember, seasoning should enhance the natural flavours of the meat rather than overpower them. With practice and a bit of creativity, you'll discover the perfect seasoning techniques to elevate your meat dishes to new heights - to make every dinnertime exciting.
Top Tips For Seasoning Meat
Salt: Salt is a fundamental seasoning that enhances the natural flavours of the meat. Season the meat with salt before cooking, allowing it to penetrate the surface and enhance the taste. Use kosher salt or sea salt for better control over the seasoning.
Pepper: Ground black pepper adds a pleasant aromatic kick to meat. Sprinkle it evenly over the meat to provide a subtle heat and balance the flavours. Freshly ground pepper yields the best results.
Dry Rubs: Dry rubs are mixtures of herbs, spices, and seasonings applied to the meat's surface. Create your own blend or use pre-made rubs to add complex flavours. Apply the rub generously, pressing it into the meat for better adherence. Let the meat sit in the refrigerator for some time to allow the flavours to infuse.
Marinades: Marinades are liquid mixtures that help tenderise and flavour the meat. They often include ingredients like acid (citrus juice, vinegar), oil, herbs, spices, and aromatics. Submerge the meat in the marinade and let it marinate in the refrigerator for a specific time according to the recipe. Ensure the meat is properly coated and turn it occasionally to distribute the flavours evenly.
