47 ReviewsThe challange in "cooking quickly" - when you're dealing with Chicken
- that sorta has to be cooked through to avoid getting sick.
Now red meats such as steak and such, you can vary to your likeness.
Something to remember with cooking a juicy steak:
Many people "over cook" Their steak. To help you keep it juicy:
Never slice it open to see if it's done. Cook it for about 3 minutes then turn over for another 3 minutes (Though this depends on the size and thickness of a steak)
Then pull the steak out and put in some tin foil. and let it sit for about 5 minutes. The tin foil will keep it hot, but the meat will keep cooking while its out of the pan.People forget this rule or they don't know it.
Now, i like to cook my steaks in butter
with some salt and a LOT of pepper. Cracked pepper if i can help it.
Some of the Best cuts (steak)
#1 Flat Iron (This can be very expensive steak but its one of the most tenderest ones)
#2 Filet Mignon ( you see this a lot in restaurants done differently.
#3 New York Steak (this is often used for BBQing)
Some people like to marination their Steaks/Chicken to soak in the flavors. This is where your "Time Cost" comes in. You don't really have to do this.
For red meat you can use seasons however you like when Pan Frying them.
For Chicken its a lil tough. Often times can seem dry. That's why its often mixed with pasta, sauces, gravy, marinated, deep fried with batter.Remember red meat cooks faster than chicken.
Betty Crocker makes some "Complete Meals
" These are really great! But they too can take some time to prep and cook.
I hope this wasn't overwhelming and is helpful.
Someone else might have some better input or correct me if i'm wrong in some areas
Also have you considered cooking in a Crockpot?
