Inexpensive Cuts on the Cinder Grill

Inexpensive Cuts on the Cinder Grill

The food supply chain has been a newsworthy topic recently. Reports of  meat shortages have been increasing, especially prime cuts. One such article was even titled “Skip the steak, buy the brisket.”  The Cinder Grill can help with that brisket and other inexpensive cuts, by making the tenderizing effects of sous vide cooking available without muss or fuss. Here’s how to cook inexpensive cuts on the Cinder Grill.

 

Let's Get Cooking!

 

It’s been known since time immemorial that that long, moist cooking tenderizes tough meat.  Where the sous vide method shines is in holding meat at a precise temperature well below the boiling point of water. This way the meat tenderizes but doesn’t overcook or disintegrate, retaining its shape and pinkness while becoming toothsome. The Cinder Grill further improves on sous vide by doing away with the bulky water bath and troublesome plastic bags of traditional sous vide.


To tenderize a tough cut on the Cinder, time is the key, but much less time than with traditional sous vide.  Bring the meat to your desired temperature, say 135F, then keep it there for a couple of hours (rather than 24 or more). Set a timer, then check the meat every half hour until fork tender. Afterwards, sear, slice, and serve as usual. (Our article on searing may be helpful in this regard.) 


The first time making a slow-cooked cut on the Cinder Grill, try doing so on an easy day when it doesn’t matter so much what time the food is ready. That will give an estimate of how long the process will take, to be applied to more time-dependent dinners. Whenever you choose to cook inexpensive cuts on an indoor grill, the Cinder Grill is ready to prepare them precisely and perfectly.
