Appropriate binding of meat pieces and high water retention are two most important factors in marketing high quality restructured meat products. Here, the processing technologies viz massaging time and cooking time play pivotal role and can improve the appearance, palatability and texture of the finished products. and under this study, the quality of Restructured Buffalo Meat Steaks (RBMS) prepared with three different massaging times viz., 10(7+3), 12(9+3) and 15(12+3) minutes and cooking time viz., 40, 45 and 50 minutes was evaluated. It was found that cooking yield of the steaks prepared with 15 minutes massaging time was significantly higher (P<0.05) than 10 and 12 minutes and sensory scores revealed no significant difference (P>0.05) between different massaging time. However, there was a significant reduction (P<0.05) in the product yield with each increase in cooking time. Based on cooking yield and sensory attributes, 15 minutes massaging time and cooking time of 40 minutes was considered optimum for product preparation.
