Flash in the Pan: Sauteing Made Simple

Everyday Food, September 2012

One skillet and four steps lead to endless easy, delicious dinners.

Step 1 Dry a thin cut of meat by dredging it in flour or patting it with paper towels.

Step 2 Sear meat until it's browned and cooked through.

Step 3 Saute aromatics, such as garlic, to build flavor. You can add other veggies here, too.

Step 4 Deglaze pan, adding wine or broth and scraping up flavorful bits to make a sauce.

Once you've mastered this technique, mix up the protein. The meats in these recipes are interchangeable.
