Hard boil meat (be it beef, chicken or pork) in 2 boullion cubes and 16 ounces of water for the most tender meat that even a small child can eat without teeth or an adult without their dentures. Take the meat flavored water to make a low calorie gravy with the directions that are on any corn starch box. This is the only way I have made gravy in over 20 years, IT IS THAT GOOD AND EASY.

I am taking care of my Dad who is ninety. He is in good health but has a hard time chewing meat. Does anyone have any recipes that I could use?

Lynda, I work with elderly almost daily. Just put any meat in a blender or processor, add chicken broth, beef broth, milk, or any vegetable juice. Chop it fine, but not all the way to puree unless he hasn't any teeth. This works well with vegetables too. Hope this helps. L
Shepards pie, quiche, baby food, soups with meat chopped, cream beef, mash potatoes with ground meat & gravy. I did a lot of these when my Mom was sick.
Tenderizing meat, either manually or with a solution, makes for a tasty dish. This page is about how to tenderize meats.
Even cheaper cuts of meat come out moist and tender when cooked as a pot roast. This page contains pot roast recipes.
