Culinary Tip: Saute

Whether you’re just learning how to cook or you’ve been doing it for years, it’s inevitable that you’ll make your fair share of mistakes in the kitchen. Yes, even good cooks and seasoned pros make mistakes. It happens when we’re in a rush, feeling a little bit lazy, or are simply new to the kitchen.

Saute Technique – To help keep food from sticking always heat the pan first and then add the oil.  Heating the pan first allows the pores to open and fill with oil.  This prevents the food from getting stuck in the pores of the pan.

When cooking meat or fish, dry it, season it and place in the hot pan. Do not push, pull or rush it. Let it sear and don’t try to move or turn it until it releases from the pan easily and by itself.
