How to Make the Most of Our Meat Boxes

How Should I Cook my Fresh Meat?

Take a decent amount of time to prepare your meals and do not cook the items straight from their packaging. Open the packaging and allow the meat to rest before cooking. This really is the best way to deal with our fresh meat cuts.

Store at room temperature on a plate and cover it with some silver foil. This allows the meat to be as tender as possible. When it isn’t rested, it may be slightly tougher that it will be if it is rested.

Cooking your meat is then of course a matter of preference; with beef/lamb for example you may prefer a slightly rare steak whilst otherwise enjoy theirs well done.

Poultry and pork products must be well cooked. You definitely do not want to be eating rare chicken! To kill any harmful bugs the internal temperature of meat needs to reach 75 celsius.
