THE MEAT MATE

Love your red meat!

There is nothing better than:

  • A pan fried steak that has that tasty and brownness on the outside, and tender, tasty, and so moist on the inside served with a delicious sauce
  • A grilled steak (whether it was done on a portable grill that sits on 2 stoves or the barbeque) with those visually delectable chargrill marks on the exterior of the meat and a tasty juicy restaurant quality interior
  • A roast with the same qualities as the above 2 – a delicious tender interior surrounded by a crispy brown and naturally tasty exterior
  • A braised dish where the meat is so incredibly flavourful and unashamedly melt – in – your – mouth tender

All the above are the hall marks of successfully prepared, cooked and served restaurant quality meats.

Do you pay top $$$ for this? Yes of course you do! The Professional Chef has been trained to do this for you.

Can you produce these results at home for a fraction of the cost – even though you haven't had this extensive professional training and all that experience as the commercial chef?

Of course you can!

And that is the purpose of this book!

My name is Phil Strasser. I am a qualified chef and I teach on this very subject. I am so proud to now have available to you an eBook (and can be printed as a book) that gives you those very skills, knowledge, great tips, and ideas based on my own culinary training and experience to set you on a path to cook your meat to a standard – a restaurant quality standard that you can be proud of!

Therefore this is not just a book on recipes, this is a thorough yet easy to read book that separates itself from the rest because:

Not only are there exciting and delicious restaurant quality recipes but it dives into valuable content – just what are taught at the culinary schools that train chefs to cook your meat to the standard that you are expected to pay top $$$ for.
