Cooking tips for the caring cook.
- Sauteing, a technique that cooks foods quickly in a small amount of fat over medium heat in an open pan, adds an enormous amount of flavor to almost any food. When sauteing potatoes, let them cook in the hot fat for several minutes without tossing or turning them. This will help produce even browning.
Sauteing a Large Amount of Vegetables
- When sauteing large quantities of vegetables such as onions, be sure not to overload your saute pan for optimal browning. Overloaded saute pans may lead to unevenly cooked vegetables, often a mixture of some that are burned and some that are underdone.
