How to Sauté to Impress
So you want to learn how to sauté some goodies? Sautéing is one of the best, most popular, and fairly flashy ways to cook it up.
To sauté means to cook food quickly in hot fat of some kind while moving the food “jump” out of the heat.
Sauté comes from the French word for jump, “sauter.”
This is a great way to sear and brown food quickly. Normally you will cut vegetables into small, roughly bite sized, pieces to make them easily manageable so you can “flip” them using a little wrist action.
- Heat the pan over medium to low heat for a few minutes.
- Add the oil, let it heat up for a minute or so.
- Then add your food, stir it or flip it till it is done in a few minutes.
In this video I will demonstrate this technique. But don’t worry, you do not have to flip in order to sauté. You can simply stir the food around as it cooks. But it sure looks cool when you do :).
