How to Defrost Meat Quickly Without A Microwave

How to Defrost Meat Quickly Without A Microwave

I grew up quickly defrosting meat — without a microwave. In fact, I’ve almost never used a microwave to defrost meat.

That’s because my method for defrosting meat is often faster than a microwave and defrosts the meat more evenly.

Nothing’s more annoying when it’s time to cook dinner than discovering your “defrosted” meat has a frozen center and cooked edges. Am I right?

With my method for quickly defrosting meat, you won’t have that problem again.

Fight Back Friday July 11th

Welcome to another Fight Back Friday! Today we are bringing together another collection of recipes, tips, anecdotes, and testimonies from members of the Real Food Revolution.

Who are they? Why, they’re the Food Renegades. You know who you are — lovers of SOLE (Sustainable, Organic, Local, and Ethical) food, traditional food, primal food, REAL food, the list goes on. I believe that by joining together, our influence can grow, and we can change the way America (and the industrialized world) eats!

So, let’s have some fun.

JULY GIVEAWAY: Breville Convection Toaster Oven (Worth $250)

Win This Breville Toaster Oven

This month, I’m giving away a Breville OV800XL Smart Oven 1800-Watt Convection Toaster Oven with Element IQ to one of you.

I adore my toaster oven! Not only is it an excellent and easy way to re-heat leftovers, it’s a great way to keep my kitchen cool when baking during the summer months.

I am so grateful for you, my readers! You hang with me through thick and thin as we buck conventional nutritional wisdom and cleave to eating according to our ancestral, traditional food ways. Without you, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

So, as a way of saying thank you and giving something back, I’m hosting monthly giveaways!

Is Your Cinnamon Real?

Fake Cinnamon vs. Real Cinnamon

Ah, cinnamon! I sprinkle it into my morning coffee, whip it into delicious homemade ice cream, and even stir it into savory Indian dishes at dinner time.

A lot of folks have made a hubbub about whether or not your cinnamon is real. Their claim is that Ceylon cinnamon is the only true cinnamon, and that Cassia (or Saigon) cinnamon is fake.

They are missing the point. The truth is, both belong the same family of plants (and even the same genus — cinnamomum). And both are similar although the taste is somewhat different.

That said, I do believe there’s such a thing as “fake” cinnamon, and it can impact not only your measure of culinary delight, but also your health.
