We all need to cook, but that doesn’t mean it has to just be a chore. Learning to cook can be a breeze for anyone who gets quality advice and good information. Some quality information is available in this article.
Always slice your meat thinly and on the bias when you are cooking stir-fry. It takes a little practice and time to get it right. Cut your meat as it is still a little frozen and cut it at a forty five degree angle, with the bias.
Keep all spices stored out of the sunlight. Storing them out exposes them to light, excessive heat and humidity, which can reduce their shelf life. Keeping your spices in a cooler space with little light will enhance their flavor and shelf life. Better tasting meals are the result of the ingredients you use, including the freshest spices possible.
If you are cooking with oil, do not pour it directly into the middle of the pan. Instead, pour it on the side of the pan, so it will heat before it reaches the food. This will enhance the flavors of the food.
If you’re making a recipe with seasoned meat, sample a small piece of the meat before cooking the rest of it. Items such as burgers, meatballs and other meat dishes need deliberate, specific seasoning. Don’t cook it all at once after you have seasoned it. Cook a small amount in a pan and taste it first. Then, you can cook the rest of it, or adjust your seasonings as needed.
Cooking requires more effort than just slapping any dish on the table. It needs to taste good, look good and make you want more!
