Meat and poultry are present in every kitchen across the globe, whether it is naturally sourced or a vegan alternative. Nonetheless, you will need kitchenware specifically designed for various tasks involved in cooking meat. Here are a few meat utensils and poultry tools that are must-haves in the kitchen.
Chicken roulade, stuffed steak, or a Thanksgiving roast? Kitchen twine, or butcher’s twine, will certainly come in handy. Avoid digging through your sewing kit for a roll of string and don’t go near the decorative twine either. Kitchen twine is made specially to withstand the high heat processes of cooking whether on the stove or in the oven. It’s the perfect poultry holder when you have an irregular-shaped roast or stuffed ingredient that needs to hold together while cooking. Easily cut the twine off with kitchen scissors after cooking and you’ll be left with an in-tact and golden brown roast.
Do you make large roasts often for dinner parties and family gatherings? Then you know the hassle of handling roasts that range anywhere from a rack of lamb to a 5 kg turkey. Especially if you surround the roast with beautiful root vegetables to compliment the roast. This is where a roasting rack comes in and is a handy poultry tool for any cook that knows that scenario far too well. Simply place the meat that needs to be cooked on the rack prior to putting it in the oven and set the rack on a sheet pan. Afterward, you’ll be able to lift the entire roast out of the pan with ease and relocate it to a serving dish without the hassle.
Basting is an important part of the steak cooking process — or any meat searing process as a matter of fact. A basting brush is used to glaze and spread a thin layer of oil or butter onto the meat. Use it to smother the piece of meat throughout the frying process. Although it is a meat tool, you can use it to glaze other food in the kitchen with oil or butter as well.
Another one of the best tools and equipment in cooking meat is a basting spoon. This goes hand in hand with a basting brush. Use it to gather collected pools of oil from the corner of the pan and then reapply onto the meat. Repeating this process several times when cooking steak will give it a punch of flavor and keep the meat juicy.
