A list of pure ingredients

The marinades in your Les Prêts-à-cuire du Boucher meat dishes contain:

  • No artificial colours 
  • No artificial flavours
  • No added sulphites

Five tips for becoming a top chef this summer

  • Preheat barbecue 10 to 15 minutes before grilling food.
  • To keep meat juicy inside, don’t salt it a long time before cooking.
  • Handle meat with tongs or a spatula instead of a carving fork. Piercing the meat allows the juices to run out, drying the meat.
  • Turn the meat or poultry once only during cooking to ensure it stays tender throughout. Check the degree of doneness by inserting a meat thermometer into the middle of meat or poultry.
  • Loosely cover cuts of beef, pork, veal, and lamb with aluminum foil and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving so that the meats’ juices disperse, making the meat juicy and flavourful. It’s the ideal way to get perfectly cooked meat on the BBQ!

Perfect for a meal with friends

Spicy Portuguese flattened chicken is perfect cooked on the barbecue. For a bit of crunch, add some slices of serrano ham.
