Place Your Cutting Board In A Sheet Pan To Catch Meat Runoff

In a perfect world, we’d all own beautiful, huge cutting boards carved from free-range trees, complete with grooves around the edges to catch any runoff that may occur while carving meats. But Hell is empty, the devils are here, and my cutting boards are groove-less.

Luckily, you and I don’t need a groovy cutting board to prevent meaty juices from flowing forth onto our countertops, floor and clothing — you just need a rimmed baking sheet, which I’m sure you have.

Set the cutting board down in the sheet pan and carve as usual, delighting in the mess that you’re not making. (Which, if you’re anything like me, is a rare occurrence.)
