Gluten free meat is a basic ingredient for great gluten free meal ideas. Throw in some food science know-how, creativity and a little imagination . . . you have yourself the beginnings of a tasty culinary adventure!

Here's a Gluten Free Meat Secret

Cooking gluten free meats at high temperatures makes the proteins in them tough and harms good nutrition.

The human body needs protein, vitamins and minerals for energy production.  Meats are a powerhouse filled with B Vitamins, iron, copper and phosphorus, all vital water soluble nutrients that are lost when meats are salted prior to cooking and are cooked at high temperatures.

Since meats are the most expensive food item on your grocery list, it is advisable to invest in a good meat thermometer to aid in controlling the heat to protect proteins and nutrition and to ensure tenderness and to preserve flavorful juices.

Keep in mind, large cuts of meat have two temperatures to consider, the exterior temperature, and the internal temperature. If you want delicious tasting, tender meat that slices well, maintain internal temperatures between 120°F and 160°F.

Roast the least tender cuts of meat at low temperatures and serve on the rare side.  An added benefit to this cooking method is the savings on energy consumption. 

The same principle applies to ground meats; brown them slowly over lower heat to retain flavorful juices and tenderness.

Also a well pounded tough cut of meat should be treated as a tender cut, cooked at a low temperature for a very short time.

Keeping meat juicy and flavorful is important.  Brush lean meats with oil or melted fat to seal in the juices before cooking.  Leave the salt at the dining table to season the meat after serving, as salt draws out the juices while cooking.  Avoid basting meat while it cooks as it washes away the fat layer protecting meat from drying out.

Another Gluten Free Meat Secret

Instead of tossing out the nutrition with the discarded meat juices, serve meats with sauces and gravies made from these juices, or freeze the juices for later use in soups and stews.
