How can I ignite the charcoal on my grill if I don’t have charcoal lighter?

1. Make 3 balls of kitchen paper (2 squares for each ball), place in a small bowl and
2. pour ½ cup oil over them.
3. Place each ball in a different place on the grill, then heap charcoal over each in a pyramid shape, while making sure there is enough air between then.
4. Light the paper, which burns slowly as oil paper and then ignites the coals.
About 10 minutes later spread out the coals; 5 minutes later, the grill is ready for use (when the charcoal stops burning with a flame and begins to be covered with a white ash).
The result: Now you can grill your meat or fish – and it won’t taste of kerosene!


How does one roast meat on the grill properly?
After lighting the grill it is important to clean the wires using a steel brush and an onion that has been dipped in oil.
It is recommended to leave a small area on the corner of the grill without charcoal, so that you can place the meat that is ready there, without it burning. After placing the meat on the wires - don’t move it, don’t squash it, don’t turn it over for at least 2 minutes! Only after that you can gently lift the meat occasionally, to check if it’s ready to be grilled on the other side.

How does one carve the meat properly?

The grains in every cut of beef lay in a certain direction. The significance of the grains is the way that the cut has grown. Beef should always be carved
against the grain, for the simple reason that the shorter the grains in a slice, the lower the probability that the meat fibers (hairs) will get caught between your teeth. Also, tough cuts of meat that are carved against the grain will be easier to chew.



How to select a cut of meat that will be appropriate for the dish I’m planning to make?

In order to select a cut that will suit the dish - it is important to be aware and to check the following: the quantity of fat in the cut; the toughness of the cut; the resistance during cooking. For fast cooking (grill, stir-fry, frying in a skillet) it’s best to choose a cut that is fatty and relatively soft, like rib-eye steak or fillet. For cooking in liquid (gravy) - it’s best to choose a relatively dry cut, like brisket, shank or muscle. For long, slow cooking (stew, casserole, soup) choose a tough and fibrous cut like shoulder or roast shoulder.



The chefs on cooking programs use “beef broth”. What is this? How does one make beef broth?

Broth is used as a liquid for cooking, and adds a flavor that is richer and more complex than water. For that reason chefs prefer to use beef broth (or fish broth) when preparing dishes, soups and sauces.
Instructions for preparing beef broth:
2 kg. meat bones
1 large, coarsely sliced onion
2 carrots, peeled and coarsely sliced
1 head of celery root, cleaned and coarsely sliced
2 sprigs of thyme
3 liters of water
Heat the oven to 250 degrees and sear the bones on a tray in the oven for about 20 minutes. Transfer the bones to a pot with 3 liters of water, and bring it to a boil. Remove the scum that rises to the top. Then add the vegetables and spices. Lower the heat and cook for three hours. Remove from the heat and drain the liquid. It is recommended then to remove the scum again, or refrigerate the broth and scrape off the layer of fat that rises to the top. The broth is ready to be used as an addition to gravy, as a basis for a soup, or in a dish to be cooked.
