Minimizing Meat

Season 2, Episode 12 of 13

In this episode we're "Minimizing Meat: Recipes for the Cautious Carnivore!" It's no secret that when it comes to eating red meats and poultry - at our age - the selection, preparation and portioning are very important. Smaller, leaner cuts are best. Plus, more healthful cooking methods keep the steaks, chops and cutlets from wallowing in their own fat, or swimming in extraneous sauces. A well-balanced meal that includes meat is a simple equation - one quarter from the butcher shop, one quarter from the granary or potato bin, and fully half our plate from the garden! Chef/host David Jackson puts beef on the grill, pork in the pan and a chicken in the pot, while keeping saturated fat to a minimum and great taste turned up to the max! David accentuates the importance of keeping meat dishes modest, accompanying them with sensible portions of healthy carbs and oodles of veggies, and saying "No Thanks" to rich sauces and heavy gravies!
