Love the sear of a stainless skillet but prefer to skip the scrubbing after the peppers meld to the bottom midway through cooking? A little more oil should help, but don’t just pour it over the top of the food or you’ll end up with a greasy, soggy mess.
Heated oil on a hot pan creates a slick, nonstick surface, guaranteeing a surefire sauté. Do it this way in three easy steps.
Step 1. Use a metal spatula to loosen the vegetables or meat, and then push them to one side of the skillet.
Step 2. Tilt the pan so the empty area is over the heat.
Step 3. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil to the empty area and let it get hot before moving the food back.
