Simple Meat Carving Ideas

1.   After you take out the roasted meat from the oven, allow it to stand for about 15 minutes so that the juices inside it can settle and spread evenly making the tender than before.


2.   Sharpen the carving knife to carve the meat smoothly. Some quick swipes of the knife on the knife sharpener tend to point the blade to make it at optimal quality.


3.   Hold the whole meat firmly using a meat fork before you begin carving.


4.   Carve the meat across the grain by keeping the knife at a regular angle for every slice of meat. If you carve across the grain, the juices of the roasted meat will remain within the roast. Thus, you will end up eating extremely tender slices of meat.
