Cutting Raw Meat Easily

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm a tad under-the-weather. So here's my super quick tip of the day...

Just in case there is anyone out there who does not already know this-

If you need to chop, slice, or cut meat neatly, it is much, much easier to do it while the meat is still partially frozen. This is especially true for chicken, but works well for beef and pork as well. Use a sharp knife and partially frozen meat and you'll get neat strips or cubes every time.

Hope you feel better soon. I did know this tip, my problem is getting that meat to the "partially defrosted" state!

I'm a vegetarian these days, so I haven't done this lately, but I used to use a pair of kitchen shears for cutting up meat into even strips or cubes. It also works better when the meat is slightly frozen.
