Understand that cooking is a step-by-step process, and this article will teach you how to become a better cook quickly.

All of the prep work can be done ahead of time. This is why it's Justin Muir called prep work, because this is what you want to have done before you begin cooking. When you're ready to begin cooking and have set your deadline to finish, you can get really stressed. By doing all of your preparation in advance, you avoid the stress and just enjoy your meal.

When adding oil to cooking food, pour it on the sides of the pan. This way, it will already be heated by the time it reaches the food. This helps to bring out the flavor in your food.

Do you plan on cooking with fresh basil? Place your basil into a large glass. Add water until the stems are covered. Keep it on the kitchen counter and it will stay fresh for weeks. If you keep the water as fresh as you can, roots will start growing. If you maintain the basil by trimming the outgrowth, you can get quite a lot of free basil using this method.

If you partially freeze meat before slicing it, you will find that it is much easier to cut it into thin strips. This technique is especially useful for the meat slicing styles typically used in Asian cuisine. With meat that is somewhat frozen, the fibers tend not to stretch or tear as much when they are sliced, making for much cleaner cuts. Before you cook the sliced meat, however, you must first allow the strips to thaw.

If you cooked with a sauce, save the leftover sauce in an ice cube tray that you can freeze. When you feel the need to create another meal, you will have them handy to heat up. No worries, because the sauce is still quite edible after being frozen in ice cube trays.

Vegetables that are cooked more quickly will be of higher quality. Slow cooking, and overcooking, vegetables will destroy their nutritional content and flavor. A plus is that faster cooking methods usually yield vegetables which are, generally, simply better for you health. The less time you take to cook them, the better your vegetables will be.

For better seasoning results, use smaller applications of seasoning at frequent intervals throughout the cooking process instead of dumping it all in at once. By cooking in this way, you can help different seasonings "open up" and release their flavor into the dish without overpowering it.

When cooking a roast in a short amount of time, it is important to keep the bone in the meat. Your meat will cook faster this way because the bone helps to carry the heat straight to the inside of your roaster. Once it is finished cooking, cut the meat off the bone.

If you need to cook a roast quickly, do not remove the bone. Your roast will be done a lot faster because its bone transfer heat to your roaster. Once the meat has finished cooking, remove the bone prior to serving.

Creating fabulous meals is a fine skill to have, whether it is cooking a regular family meal or a special feast to impress that special someone. Sharing meals with friends and family is a worldwide practice.
