To Rest Meat or Not to...that is the Question?

kySafran | Jun 21, 202109:04 AM     62

I've heard arguments against resting meat and for. Then there's a plethora of considerations: keep it warm in a low oven, or simply cover it loosely in foil; rest before cooking, or don't; 1 min for each 100g or 2 mins per cm, or rest for the same time you cooked it for; is the temperature relevant; adjust for the cut of meat or don't; different meats require different treatment or treat them the same; does the method need considering, BBQ or Broil?

And, why do we rest meat at all?

To be honest I don't really know, so I thought the argument would be a good one for the Chowhounders. And at the same time I can learn how it's done.
