Less Cut Into Little Pieces Is More

I remember reading a quote a long time ago about fried rice and stirfry style recipes developing as a way for poor families to make a single serving of meat serve a whole family – when the meat is chopped very small, everyone gets a few pieces in their bowl.

The sandwich above is more generous in its serving of meat, but the idea is the same. A 5 ounce steak looks tiny when placed on a plate in once piece. But if you slice it thinly and pile it on a slice of rustic bread, it doesn’t feel so small anymore. In fact, it feels quite indulgent.

Whether you’re trying to eat smaller portions or you’re long overdue a bit of steak on your tight budget, it’s a concept worth keeping in mind.
