Open­ing the ab­domen

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Notebook -

By mak­ing a shal­low cut at the top of the ab­domen (by the back legs), you can in­sert your fin­gers in an up­side down V shape (point­ing down­wards). Into the bot­tom of this V in­sert your knife shal­lowly and then cut down­wards, keep­ing your first two fin­gers in place. This helps holds the stom­ach and in­testines in place as you cut. If you don’t do this you can slice the guts open and the con­tents can taint the meat.
