So you’ve purchased some organic meat to have for dinner – great choice! Organic lamb and beef are a scrumptious addition to the dinner plate, and bring a plethora of health benefits to the table (literally!).
But once you’ve decided on whether you’re eating organic beef or lamb for dinner, it can be hard to decide how exactly you’re going to cook it – and there are plenty of options available.
Each cooking utensil you use to sear your organic meat gives you a different final result, so let’s take a look at some of the most common and what sort of dish you might end up with:
Ahh, the classic Aussie barbecue. It’s a favourite in many households, and is perfect for cooking organic meat on. This is the best tool to use if you’re after quick results, and is great for quickly searing a medium rare steak or some classic organic lamb chops. Add a little wood to the embers and you’ll get a delicious smoky flavour.
A non-stick pan is a great alternative to barbecuing when you want a quick and easy meal. It will sear through pieces of steak, brown mince and other small pieces of meat quickly, making it perfect for almost all types of cooking. These pans also eliminate the need for potentially unhealthy oils and are great for cooking inside when the weather gets colder!
If it’s tender, ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ meat you’re after, the slow cooker is a great choice. Use this when you’ve got plenty of time on your hands to prepare the dinner, and you’ll be rewarded with the softest of meat.
The oven is best used for preparing a hearty and filling meal, such as a roast. It’s great for cooking large pieces of meat such as an organic lamb leg or rolled rib beef roast. It will cook a hefty sized cut right through, and you can add a selection of vegetables to roast alongside. Many ovens will come into use as the winter months roll in!
