Phil Strasser - The Meat Guy | Author of Your Meat Mate
Phil Strasser has dedicated his life to perfecting the art of cooking meat. He is known as The Meat Guy and is the author of Your Meat Mate. Featured on The Morning Show on Channel 7 [twice] with his demonstration on how to cook sirloin steak and skirt steak, Phil certainly knows a thing or two about meat! To watch and also hear the sizzle of the steaks, click the links at the end of this bio.
There is nothing Phil Strasser does not know about meat; from identifying the different cuts of meat, to choosing the best cut for different occasions and cooking each cut to perfection. Phil also creates mouth-watering marinades, sauces and dressings to complement his meals. As Phil says, “Sauces make the meals, dressings make the salads.”
This is the first time I have the honour of having a Chef on Your Career Podcast and I’m delighted to share with you Phil Strasser’s interview about his culinary career journey and what fuels his passion for cooking.
In this interview enjoy listening to the joys [and challenges] of working in a commercial kitchen, being a home chef and running your own food business. We also chat about different recipes and our conversation will get your mouth watering.
I first met Phil 10 years ago when he came to me as a client to grow his food business. 10 years on, when Covid hit the industry hard, we reconnected as it was time for him to leverage his reputation as “the meat guy” into a new role. Having made a successful career transition, Phil now is the creator of the delicious pies at Craig Cook – The Natural Butcher and continues to creatively tantalise our tastebuds with his culinary talents.
