Tips for Carving Meat
To properly carve meat, you’ll need a carving set that includes both a slicing knife and a forked knife. Before you get started, remember to let your meat rest for about 10 to 20 minutes to seal in flavorful juices. Next, place your meat on a large cutting board with channels along the edges. Take your carving knife and fork set in your hands and insert the fork into the top of the meat. Then, use your slicing knife to cut into the meat diagonally against the grain. Remember to always cut away from yourself to prevent accidental injuries.
How to Choose Carving Knives
The best carving knife will have an ergonomic handle that’s easy to grip. In addition, the knife will be forged from a single piece of metal for added durability and strength. Depending on the type of meat you’ve prepared, you may want a serrated slicer knife (for tougher cuts of meat) or a thinner, straight-edged knife (for tender meats that are easier to slice into).
