Do you save water/juices produced by cooked meat?

If so, share examples of how you use it.

  • Sometimes - it's good for gravy or stock or sometimes if fixing boxed rice or stuffing I sub meat juices for the water or at least as much of it as I can. It gives it so much more flavor.

  • When I roast a chicken if I'm not making gravy with the pan drippings I put them in a ziplock bag with the carcass and freeze it for making stock. If I'm roasting a beef or pork roast I keep the drippings with the leftover meat to keep it from drying out.

  • no...i may use the same skillet i cooked bacon or sausage in to make gravy on occasion, but that's it.

  • I should but I don't. I use it for gravy on the current meal.

  • Some - chicken & turkey I add the juices, carcass, skin, etc, and lots of water to make stock. A beef roast I might make some gravy. Other than that, no, I don't save the stuff - it goes to the dog.
