CUT­TING IT THIN

Food & Drink - - TABLE OF CONTENTS - By Monda Rosen­berg

Catch on to the joys of thin cuts of meat, es­pe­cially on week­days—they of­fer a fast and easy way to whip up de­li­cious din­ners.

Fast-fry, thinly sliced beef steaks and bone­less pork chops are now front and cen­tre in most su­per­mar­kets, and when pre­pared well they can leave you feel­ing very sat­is­fied with 4 oz (125 g) of steak in­stead of one thicker 8-oz (250 g) steak. With ris­ing meat prices, reg­u­lar priced steaks no longer fit some bud­gets. Be­sides, Health Canada rec­om­mends 2½ oz (75 g) as a serv­ing. The good news is you won’t feel cheated. The steaks may be thin but some are the size of a small din­ner plate. Plus, we’ve added nu­tri­tious flavour-filled in­gre­di­ents to our slim steaks that make for quick and easy en­trées.
