Meat is a staple in many Southern Living recipes, and understanding its versatility means considering all the wonderful ways to use it.
Whether you prefer using ground beef as the basis for quick-fix suppers, or prefer to make your own dry rub to slow-cook ribs, meat can be an incredible addition to a meal when cooked properly. We also appreciate the diversity that meat can bring to a menu, whether in the many cuts of meat available or in the many choices you have regarding what to eat: from beef, pork, and chicken, to venison and game.
Over the years, many more unusual meats have made their way to the annals of Southern Living, including a few that one might argue would be difficult to source in the supermarket. Regardless, taking the time to prepare meats properly means that everything from fresh, juicy turkeys for the holidays to fall-off-the-bone meats can be at your fingertips. Simply focus on your favorite flavors, and choose the right meat straight from the farm.
