Simple Cooking Tips from your Apartments near Oracle

How often do you cook for yourself in the kitchen at your East Riverside Austin apartments? We totally understand if you have trouble resisting the temptation to eat at Austin’s amazing food trucks, but we’d also like to help you make use of your luxurious kitchen. After all, there’s no sense in letting those luxurious countertops and stainless steel appliances go to waste.


In the blog post below, we’ll be telling residents about a few cooking tricks that can help anyone cook better meals night after night. Not only will cooking for yourself help you save some dough, but it will also help you live healthier. We love Torchy’s as much as the next person, but it’s not as healthy as a home cooked meal.


Now that we’ve gotten the intro out of the way, let’s dive right into the list of cooking tips! When you’re done reading through the blog post below, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends. Better yet, go ahead and share it with your neighbors at your favorite community of apartments near Oracle!


Ignore cooking times.


If you’re trying to cook more, it’s likely that you’ll turn to recipes to help you cook meals that actually taste good. This isn’t a bad idea, per say, but it’s important to remember that recipes are more guidelines than they are rulebooks. You don’t have to do exactly what the recipe says. In fact, your food will probably taste better if you trust your eyes, nose and tongue instead of relying on a timer to tell you when your food is done cooking.


Cut everything to be the same size.


One of the keys to cooking well is making sure everything cooks evenly. If your food cooks unevenly, you’ll notice it in every bite you take. Some parts will be overcooked and some will taste a little raw. It’s hard to cook everything evenly when you’re working with different sized pieces, but you can alleviate this issue by cutting everything so that it’s the same size.


Let meat cool before cutting into it.


When meat heats up, the juices move towards the outside of the meat. As it cools down, those juices move back towards the middle. If you cut into the meat too quickly after taking it off the stove, you run the risk of letting the juices spill out onto your cutting board.
