7 insanely clever cooking hacks that will make you a kitchen star
Do you want to make your family drool over your meals, yet feel too stressed up to make them? Here are some ways to prepare delicious meals without headaches. And you’ll become a kitchen star too.
1. Cooking Eggs
First of all, you might want to add eggs to your meal. Of course, you must use new ones. A stale egg will spoil your dinner. So how can you tell if an egg is fresh? Drop it into cold water. It’s a good egg if it sinks. It’s a little stale if it rises to the middle and inedible if it floats.
There’s also a way to cook a batch of them at one go. If you need to prepare lots of them for a crowd, don’t boil them. Bake them in the oven instead.
2. Knowing when to flip fried meat
One of the cooking mistakes that people make most often is to flip their meat all the time. Doing this makes meat lose its tenderness and crisp edge. You’ll still have to turn it over for both sides to cook. So when do you do so? One way to tell is to give you frying pan a shake. If your meat slides, it’s time to flip it.
3. Using Fruit
Are you a salmon lover? You may drool over it but feel put off when it sticks to the pan. Adding a few slices of lemon between the slices of fish prevents this because it stops friction. The lemon slices also add flavor to the fish.
4. Melting Butter
Do you want your butter to soften, but not melt completely? Use a hot glass because it generates enough heat. Warm the glass in a microwave for about two to three minutes, then place it over frozen butter. The butter will melt, though only partially. You can then start to use it.
5. Not crowding the pan
Another cooking mistake that people tend to make is to crowd their frying pans with food. They probably do so to save time. If you love your meat tender and juicy, leave some space between them.
6. Making mayonnaise quickly
You may respect the value of your greens, but hate that they’re flavorless. You can try to make a mayonnaise. Just combine an egg with 150 ml of olive oil.
7. Peeling ginger with a spoon
Everyone loves ginger in their stir-fries, and some people even add it to their tea. However, it can get a little stubborn. Peeling it with a vegetable grater may not help, so use a spoon to scrape the skin off.
