Meat may be America's favorite main dish, but it still provokes plenty of questions. Are prime ribs worth the extra money Can you make real barbecue at home Is there a good way to keep pork chops from drying out as they cook What's the secret to a foolproof holiday ham

If you have ever wondered about the way to cook a particular cut of meat, then you will find Steak, Chops, Roasts, and Ribs indispensable. Packed with more than 300 recipes, this book represents the cumulative experience and knowledge of the test cooks and editors at America's Test Kitchen. Have you ever spent $50 on prime rib only to ruin the roast at home Have you ever made a pot roast that was tough, a steak that was charred on the outside and raw on the inside, or a beef stew that tasted no better than a can of Dinty Moore They've tested (and retested) just about every technique, ingredient, and piece of equipment imaginable to produce reliable recipes that should work the first time--and every time. They have roasted 32 cuts of prime rib so you don't have to.

Detailed instructions and hundreds of step-by-step drawings will help to guarantee success. Illustrated tutorials take you through the process of making a pan sauce, stir-frying, roasting on the grill, and more. Steak, Chops, Roasts, and Ribs is also packed with the kind of no-nonsense ingredient tastings and equipment ratings that make the Best Recipe books so useful.
