Rare, medium-rare, medium or well-cooked – each to his own!

When it comes to cooking meat, everyone in your family has a different preference. While you love your steak rare, your children won’t even touch it unless it’s well-cooked. As far as recipes go, which dishes are best for your health? Let’s explain…


The health benefits of different meat-cooking methods

You probably already know that the big advantage of grill-cooked meat is that you don’t need to add any fat. But be careful not to cook it too long – well-cooked shouldn’t mean well-burnt! Some grills, such as the OptiGrill, enable you to preselect how you want your meat cooked so that it’s never overdone. Because you won’t get any vitamins or minerals from a burnt steak!

As for stews and roasts, you’re best going for a specifically-adapted appliance like a pressure cooker, because the longer you cook your meat, the more it loses its iron and vitamin content – especially vitamins B3, B6 and B12. With a pressure cooker, that world-beating beef stew of yours that the whole family loves is ready to eat in 90 minutes, as opposed to four hours in a traditional casserole.
