Tip 2: Cook ’em low and slow.

Tougher cuts of beef and pork are a lot cheaper than steaks and chops (about $2 to $6 per pound for many cuts compared with $10 or more per pound for steaks), but no one wants to eat a piece of leather for dinner. The best way to cook tough cuts of meat: cook them low and slow, usually for 3 or more hours, often in liquid, to make them melt-in-your-mouth tender. Try Chinese Pork & Vegetable Hot Pot (pictured) or Oven Barbecued Brisket.
