I don't cook meat in mine, but I do steam veggies with it. Thin sliced carrots are my favorite. I never really liked them before, but now I buy baby carrots, slice them in 2-3 thin slices, steam and then sprinkle fresh lemon juice and a couple of squirts of butter spray. Mmmmmm! Squash and broccoli are also good the same way.
