Remove the meat from the freezer before it is frozen, but when it is solid to touch. Next, position the meat at 45 degrees to the chopping board and slice across the grain with a sharp knife.
Partially frozen meat is easier to cut into thin strips. This method is great for oriental meals that require small strips. The meat holds a tighter form when the it is partially frozen making the strips clean cut with out any stretching of the meat. However, the meat strips should be thawed to assure even cooking.
For crispier French fries, you should chill the peeled potatoes in water for 30 minutes or more before frying them. Doing this increases the strength of the fiber in the potatoes, which means that they don’t break down as quickly during the deep frying phase.
To reduce the calories and fat of mashed potatoes, and to avoid sacrificing taste or texture, replace some potatoes with the same amount of cauliflower. Cauliflower has little taste of its own, so it will blend right into your potatoes and pick up flavors from whatever other ingredients you use. Cauliflower also matches the color and texture of the potatoes. This is a great way to add veggies and eliminate calories from a favorite dish.
