How to Slice Raw Meat for Stir-frying or Sautéing

Meats used for stir-frying or sautéing should be sliced thinly across the grain so the meat fibers are short, resulting in more tender cooked meat. For easier slicing, freeze the meat for about 30 min. before slicing. Before slicing the meat, place the meat on a cutting board and look for the direction of the grain. (The meat will have small lines running in one direction.) You may need to slice the meat in 2 different directions to determine the direction of the grain. Use a sharp slicing knife to cut the meat across the fibers into thin slices. Or if you have an electric knife, you can use that to quickly slice the meat. When cooking the meat, be careful to not overcook it. These thin meat strips will cook in just a few minutes.

How to Purchase Pork

When purchasing pork, look for meat that is moist and attractively pink; it should not look gray or red. Compared to beef, pork has very little marbling. Exterior fat should be smooth and white.
