And yes! It is so much easier to filet meats when only partial thawed

I agree. No one should try to provide cooking instruction with these kinds of bad examples. I know what a small bad habit in the kitchen can cost you....lol

Another great idea is to slice the meat while it is partially frozen. It is much easier to handle then.

My father was a chef and a great baker. He told me often never to cut with a knife towards any part of my body. Always away. Good advice and I have made the mistake of not following it sometimes and usually ended up with a couple of stitches for my trouble.

You are right Sicarius, even professionals get hurt.

Some people don't know how to keep the knifes sharp and the pressed harder to make a cut. It is very important to keep the knifes sharp.

Carlene @ I guess you haven't seen Masterchef, Hells Kitchen, etc, grown ups, even when being quite professional, still cut themselves ;)

It's fine,but it's not safe at all; Not at all, it's very dangerous by doing it this way people can cut their hand. No, it's not the way to do it.

The safer way to do it, and the only way is to put the meat flat on a cutting board use one hand on top of the meat, get a very sharp fillete knife and start slicing.

I learn it from a butcher friend of mine, and beleave me butchers know how to do it.

I feel that this video should be remove befor some one get hurt..
