Cooking with skewers may seem easy; however, there are some tips that will make your skewer cuisine delicious every time. If you are choosing to use a metal skewer you can choose from round or flattened skewers. Skewers that are not round will better hold food in place on the skewer.
If you are going to make a stir-fry dish, slice the meat on the bias, as thinly as possible. Getting the perfect cut can sometimes be a challenge. You should take the meat out when it reaches a firm state yet not frozen, and slice across the grain at an angle of 45 degrees.
When you are going to be cooking for someone important, whether it’s a boss or a potential love interest, make certain you are cooking something you are familiar with. Never try to cook a new recipe or use a new ingredient that you have not tried before. This can lessen the stress of your cooking.
Do you know that guilty feeling you get when you throw away fruit that has mold? Can you save the rest of the fruit if you cut away the moldy, rotten part? Unfortunately, there isn’t any way to save fruit that has begun to rot. Fruit with any mold on it must be discarded because it contains unhealthy organisms.
It is possible to lower the fat and calorie content of mashed potatoes without impacting the taste or texture by replacing some of the potato content with cauliflower. Cauliflower’s bland taste makes it easier for it to blend with the potatoes, so that you can’t taste it, and it picks up other ingredients. Cauliflower has the same texture and color as potatoes, offering you a perfect way to add another vegetable to your dish while cutting calories.
It is not always easy to remember the proper grilling times for all meats. A good meat thermometer can pinpoint the cooking status of meat, inside and out. Use a digital thermometer for the most precise results. A good rule of thumb to reduce the total cooking time is to always close the grill lid whenever the thickness of the meat exceeds 1.5 inches.
There are no shortage of ways to make the most of your cooking experience. If you follow these tips, then you will realize cooking can be a creative undertaking and doesn’t have to be boring or tiresome.
