Meat in the Electric Skillet

Unit: Electric Skillet

When you cook steaks, chicken or bone-in pork chops, heat electric skillet to 475. It will flash while it is heating up, then it will beep 3 times and stop flashing when it is ready to cook.

The electric skillet will fry meat without using oil because of the fat in the meat. If you use a marinade or breading, you will need to use a small amount of oil in the pan, since the meat isn’t in direct contact. You should also use a small amount of oil for any fish that’s not salmon. White fish can be baked with no oil if it’s frozen and you start with a cold pan. Cook on 400 for about 10 minutes and season with darn good and lemon.

Preheat pan, sprinkle darn good on both sides and tenderize well with a fork. Spread seasoning in so it’s not dry on the outside. Cool 2 minutes on each side, turn heat off and remove from pan. Let it rest for 1-2 minutes, then cut into bite sized pieces. Add 2 tablespoons of water to the pan and sprinkle more seasoning in the pan. Put steak back in the pan and cover (heat still off). Shake the skillet to coat the chicken and serve.

Chicken breast
See chicken breast and potatoes recipe.

Chicken thighs
Preheat pan. Season thighs in a ziplock back and shake to coat. Press skin side up in the skillet and cook 12 minutes with the lid tilted, flip and cook 12-18 more minutes (Depending in how many are in the pan). Remove with a metal spatula scraping under the chicken so the skin stays intact.

Pork chops (3/4 inch bone in)
Preheat skillet, season and tenderize pork. Press down and cook 4 minutes, flip and put the lid on 4 more minutes. Turn the heat off and let them stand for 6 minutes. Ooh tender and delicious!

Unit: 1.5 quart Saucepan, Salad Machine and 5 Qt Bowl
Fresh Broccoli
Corn on the Cob
Red Bell Pepper
1 lb Carrots

Cut Carrots on #4 Blade on the Machine. Pour in the bottom of the pan and arrange Broccoli, pepper and corn on top. Pour a cup of water on top and drain. Open the whistle and cover. Turn heat to medium. When pan whistles, remove from heat and let them stand 2-5 minutes or until desired tenderness is achieved.

NOTE: Putting the carrots in the bottom every time you cook fresh vegetables is a required step, then layer the other vegetables on top due to the carrots retaining a little moisture. When cooking FROZEN vegetables, you can just fill the pan and put 2 tablespoons of water on top and Do Not add the cup of water. You need to put a mixture of different types of vegetables when cooking frozen, especially corn which can scorch due to high starch content. Just make sure the bottom doesn't have any open spots. Fill pan side to side and bottom to top, open whistle and turn to medium.

Reduce heat to medium low and cook until potatoes are soft. Put Butter in a Large Mixing Bowl and pour the potatoes on top and beat until fairly smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and season to taste.
NOTE: Mash Potatoes immediately after removing from heat with only the butter. If potatoes cool before they are mashed, they will get sticky.
