Expert Tips

  • Searing meat in a pan on the stovetop then finishing in the oven is a classic restaurant technique that frees up burners while ensuring a succulent finished product that's less likely to overcook or burn.
  • To avoid the cutting board entirely, use preminced garlic or substitute 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder for the fresh garlic.
