The Meat Cuts, SteakMate and RoastMate apps ensure more beef and lamb is served up across the country by answering some key questions consumers often ask about cooking red meat, such as:

  • what are the best cooking methods for each cut of meat?
  • how long do I cook a steak for?
  • how can I tell when a roast is ready to serve?

Meat Cuts app – learn about individual meat cuts

The Meat Cuts app is your number one destination for information about beef, lamb, veal and goat cuts.

The app provides information on where individual cuts come from, their characteristics, suggested cooking methods and a perfectly matched recipe. Plus, it even suggests an alternate cut to the one you’re looking for, just in case you can’t get the exact cut from your butcher or supermarket.

SteakMate app – cook the perfect beef steak every time

The SteakMate app is designed to help you cook the perfect steak – no matter how you like it. SteakMate is your best friend when barbecuing, grilling or pan-frying beef steaks. It takes the guesswork out of cooking steak and ensures a tender, juicy result every time.

SteakMate is easy-to-use – simply enter the cut you’re cooking, the cooking method you’re using, the doneness you’re after and the thickness of your steak. The SteakMate app will then tell you exactly how long to cook your steak for. Plus, there are even handy prompts of when to turn your steak and when it has finished cooking and needs to rest.

Cooking for more than one? SteakMate has that covered with its queuing functionality, allowing you to add as many people to the queue as you like so everyone gets their steak cooked the way they like it.
