Casserole Cooking Tips
When you want to end up with a perfect casserole, take into account our following tips:
- Ingredients such as potatoes, meat and parsnips should be cut into pieces which have a similar size – only in this case they will cook evenly. Ingredients which require less cooking time should be added towards the end.
- Use a good casserole pot – if you want to end up with a good result and tasty meal.
- Don’t add flour after cooking, because you will feel the taste of raw flour while eating. If you want to have more thick casserole – coat your vegetables and meat with flour before cooking.
- The good thing about a casserole pot is that it has a tight-fitting lid. This helps to prevent any evaporation of moisture while cooking.
- Try to use a good-sized dish to cook your casserole, because when the dish is too small – it can lead to overflowed liquid. And on the contrary, when the cooking dish is too big – the liquid will reduce fast and your food can dry out or even burn. Remember – the best way to cook a casserole with equal amount of water, one third of your casserole pot.
- Casserole can be cooked ahead! And the next day itwill taste even better than on the day it has been cooked. When you want to freeze it – cool it down, put in a airtight container and place it in the freezer. Remember that you shouldn’t add any dairy product in your casserole if you want to freeze it.
