General (Beef, Pork and Deer) Tips

* Bacon won't curl if you dip it into cold water before
frying. Or, for bacon pieces try cutting it before frying
and you'll have nice even bits.

* After your French fries are done, shake them in a large
paper bag to absorb the excess grease.

* To prevent spattering when pan frying meats, first
sprinkle in a little salt.

 Although it is preferable to cook your steaks, burgers, pork chops, and roasts from a thawed state, it is possible to obtain satisfactory results without thawing.

Place your meat farther from the heat when broiling or grilling. Broil or grill 1 1/2 to 2 times the suggested time for thawed steaks, burgers and pork chops. Roast 1 1/3 to 1 1/2 times that suggested for thawed roasts.
