Vegetables

Unit: 1.5 quart Saucepan, Salad Machine and 5 Qt Bowl
Ingredients:
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.

Fried Eggs

 

Culinary Tools: 10” Gourmet Skillet

Procedures:

Butter or coconut oil method

Place a small amount of butter or coconut oil into the skillet while cold. Turn the skillet on medium heat and let it completely melt.  Continue heating for an additional 2 minutes or until it begins to bubble. Put eggs into the skillet and reduce the heat to medium-low.  Cook until done.

Cooking spray method

Spray the skillet and place on medium heat.  Continue heating the skillet until the spray begins to turn brown in the skillet.  Place eggs in and reduce the heat to medium low heat.  Cook until done.

No oil water method

Preheat the skillet on medium heat for approximately 4 minutes.  Sprinkle some salt into the skillet and then place the eggs on top of the salt.  Pour 4 tablespoons of water over the eggs and seal the lid on the skillet.  The steam heat will cook the eggs.  Cook until done and use a metal spatula to remove them from the unit.

When cooking chicken breast, don't poke the breasts with a fork.
Use tongs or a spatula to turn them over. Every hole in the meat allows moisture to escape.

Waterless Cooking Tip #77

Butter is used to keep food moist and to keep food from sticking. Waterless cookware keeps food moist, so when following a recipe, if it calls for butter you can skip it most of the time.  For example cakes, cobblers, meats, scrambled eggs, casseroles do not need butter in the recipe.

Cooking Tip #75

Instead of scrubbing a pan that is stained, spray with oven cleaner then leave in dishwasher over night. Run the dishwasher, then say hi to your brand new pan! (if your pan has black handles, we suggest removing them to avoid discoloration.)
