The Great Meat Cookbook Review
Bruce Aidells has written a big heavy comprehensive cookbook about meat “The Great Meat Cookbook“. There is probably more written concerning meat than there are recipes. You can learn much by reading the extensive advice within the pages. The basic meats covered are; beef and bison, pork, making your own sausages, pates, potted meats and cured meats, lamb and goat, and veal.
The advice in The Great Meat Cookbook included covers what is organic, grass fed, commodity, naturally raised, etc. You can learn how to read the labels, storing, safe handling, cooking methods, judging when the meat is done – all excellent information, even for experienced cooks. Illustrations are included of marbling, the different cuts and some pictures of the finished dishes. Each recipe at The Great Meat Cookbook has detailed explanations, there are variations and recipes for side dishes. The recipes are labeled with comfort food, great leftovers, freezes well, cheap eats, family meal, fit for company and many other descriptions, there is an index separating the recipes into these categories and a regular index as well.
The Great Meat Cookbook recipes are good and not the run of the mill meat dishes, for the most part and at last a book explains the difference between rubs and pastes and how to use them. We have enjoyed; sautéed steak with Rockefeller pan sauce, the ultimate meat loaf sandwich, and slow roasted lamb shoulder with rosemary-pancetta paste. The Great Meat Cookbook is perfect reference for cooks with all coking skill levels.
