Freezing meat…………

Wrap meats very tightly in either plastic wrap or freezer paper, pressing the wrapping right up against the surface of the meat. Next, wrap another layer of aluminum foil around the meat or seal it inside a zip-top freezer bag. Packaged like this, meat can be kept frozen for at least three months. Also remember a full freezer is more economical to run as the cold air doesn’t need to circulate as much, so less power is needed.

When grilling……….

Remember to move cooked food to a clean plate – not one that has previously held raw meat, fish or poultry. Bacteria from raw food can contaminate the cooked food and cause food poisoning.

Get the Olive Oil out……………….

Whether you are cooking pasta dishes or meat dishes, adding a dollop of olive oil can surely enhance their flavor. Just make sure that you are using high-quality extra virgin olive oil.

Cooking healthy………………..

A healthier cooking alternative to frying is grilling. Grilled meats have a reduced fat content. This is because the fat drips off as the food cooks. Grilled foods also have lower calorie content than fried foods.

Grilling Kabobs…………………………

Soaking your Skewers – While 30 minutes is the minimum, it’s best to plan ahead and soak your bamboo skewers overnight in water. It takes a long time for the skewers to soak up the water, but well-soaked skewers, which are slow to give up their moisture, will last longer on the grill without burning up.

To cook, prepare your grill for medium-high heat. Brush skewers with oil and season with Sichuan Salt (or your preferred spice blend), then grill, turning often, until lightly charred and cooked to your liking. Most cuts will be done in about 5–7 minutes.

Sweet hint………

Before sauteing meats, sprinkle a tiny amount of sugar on the surface. The sugar will react with the juices and then caramelize, causing a deeper browning as well as an improved flavor.
