Bright Side found out 15 simple but effective cooking tips every foodie should know. These secrets will help you to make your dishes taste just as great as Gordon Ramsay's (or even better!). How do restaurant chefs manage to cook delicious culinary masterpieces so fast? Professional chefs usually keep all their cooking tricks a secret and share them only with their students. TIMESTAMPS The perfect steak 0:47 The juiciest meat 1:31 Flavoring spices 2:24 Light and airy dough 3:05 Fish with a delicate crust 3:39 Cooking steak without oil 4:13 Creamy mashed potatoes 4:41 Excellent cream soup 5:29 The best pancakes 6:19 Sugar is not for sweetness 6:51 The most difficult one: perfectly fried eggs 7:15 Clear broth 8:10 Crispy bread crust 9:06 Cook onions correctly 9:46 Don't be afraid of garlic 10:32 SUMMARY - Don't fry a piece of meat that you've just taken out of the fridge. Leave it for an hour or 2 before cooking to let it come up to room temperature. Now you'll fry the meat evenly and get a great meal, regardless of how you like your steak done. - It takes time to fry chicken or pork properly, and you can dry them out very easily. To avoid this, many European chefs use a simple trick: they put the meat in a brine. It's very easy to make a good brine: take 3 cups of water, and add ¼ cup of salt and ¼ cup of sugar. Pour the brine into your meat so that the liquid covers it, and put the bowl in a fridge. - To extract natural flavors and enhance the taste of the black pepper or cumin in your dish, toss them in a pan over medium heat, toasting them until they're fragrant. After that, you can use a mortar and pestle to grind your spices. - If you want to make it perfect, here is a simple rule. Take the butter and eggs out of the fridge the night before to let them come up to room temperature. - If you want to fry fish on a grill, spread some mayonnaise on it to get a tasty, delicate crust. Take a pastry brush, dip the tip in the sauce, and lightly apply mayo to the fish. Add some salt, and then grill it. - Alain Ducasse, one of the most famous chefs in the world, revealed his secret for cooking a great steak. The steak is placed on its edge because it renders the fat. Now you're able to cook the steak in beef fat, plus it creates a delicious crust on the edges. - Before turning boiled potatoes into the mashed ones, you need to dry them properly. Just place them in a clean heated frying pan, and keep them there until the remains of water dry out. Don't let the heat fry them. When the potatoes are dry, you'll get the best creamy mashed potatoes. - Right before you start cooking it, fry all the vegetables separately with olive oil. Then add some water or broth. Frying will caramelize the sugar in the vegetables and enhance their flavor. The dish will be exquisite and tasty. - Regardless of the recipe you follow, always add two tablespoons of sour cream to the mix. This trick suits all kinds of pancakes well, and they turn out to be very tasty, fluffy, and free of cracks. - Sugar can be as good a seasoning as salt. Add a bit of sugar to a dish with pickled or fresh tomatoes or a tomato paste. The sugar reduces their natural sourness and makes any meal taste better. - The 3 components of perfectly fried eggs are a thick-walled frying pan, butter, and minimum heat. Heat up the frying pan, and add 1/2 tablespoon of butter. It has to melt slowly, not reach a sizzle. Break the eggs, and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add salt, and enjoy perfectly fried eggs. - A clear broth is the main component in many soups, sauces, and other dishes. To make a crystal clear broth, you need to cook chicken on a low heat without a cover for at least 3 hours. - If you bake at home, you might have faced difficulties with your crust: it's either too pale or too thick. You can solve this problem quite easily by putting a bowl of water into your oven when you bake. Instead of such a bowl, you can use a tray full of ice cubes. -Use a medium heat for frying, and add both cooking oil and butter to the heated frying pan. Cut the onions, and fry them with some salt. - If you still love to eat it but don't want to frighten away your date or wreck the negotiations, don't add garlic to the dish. Instead, you can apply some garlic juice to the plate. Thus you'll avoid the unpleasant smell and enjoy your favorite flavor.

I'm a bit upset that this video is not vegan friendly. I see eggs, butter, and most of it talks of meat. You could maybe talk about how to grill the vegan impossible burger and give tips on how to cook vegan food well so help gain more vegans as a part of a solid veganhood

You say cook onions in oil AND butter, then you say only use butter to cook onions. There were a few other inconsistencies in the other tips too, like _how to make excellent cream soup_ makes no mention of how and when to add the cream. Someone needs to proof read and fact check the scripts.

3 hacks I've learned. In sunny side up eggs, just add a little water under your egg instead of all of that butter. Cuts out calories. Bake your meats instead of frying them. Baste every 10 to 15 minutes until done. The meat will be super moist and flavorable, depending the seasoning you use. And the best one yet, use one big marshmallow in your brown sugar once you are done using it, the sugar will stay moist. Oh and instead of water in your chocolate cake recipes, add fresh original coffee. It will heighten the taste of the chocolate. One more, before boiling your potatoes, add salt and a lid full of oil to the water. Make sure to cut the skin in a complete circle all the way around the potatoes and when the potatoes are done the skins will pull off like sleeves. 😉 Now, with these hacks mentioned. Let me let you in on something very vital to your souls. Jesus is on His way, we are living in latter days. Do your research. Prophesies are coming true right before our very eyes. Read the book of Revelations. Pray for God to open your eyes and Pray for Him to get you Heaven ready. It's almost time to go back home to Heaven. I love baking and cooking so much that I asked the sweet Lord if I could be of help in His kitchen, cause I love it so much. Idk what the answer is yet, but we'll see. In Heaven, we don't have to eat unless we want to. And there will be no killing of no animals, that includes fish. Wonder what that's going to be like? My lovelies, Don't Say You Haven't Been Warned About Jesus' 2nd Coming, cause after reading this, you technically have. Pray all day, read your Bibles daily, and go to church, Spread the "Good News,"to whomever will listen. It's almost time to leave this earth and enjoy the wedding feast in Heaven. Believe me or Not... It's Very Much True... Loves ya and Jesus does, too... more than you could fathom...🌹💛🌈👑

7:38 Break the egg and cook for "45 MINUTES"
Cajun Plaisance (15 days ago)
45 minute fried egg? SERIOUSLY! I can fry a dozen in 7 minutes flat.....Mash potatoes, tip...add a tablespoon of mayo.... Want a beautiful sunny up egg? Separate the yolk from the whites before putting in the pan and cook in butter low heat. Keep in mind, electric is very different from gas stoves. Electric stoves can be unpredictable. Want amazing french fries, after you cut them, soak them at room temp for 2 hours with salty water. Be sure you paper towel pat dry before putting them in hot oil. Cooking meat? Season and sit at room temp for 2 to 3 hours before cooking, especially grilling. The season settles into the meat grains better than in the fridge. It also cooks less in time and the flavors will be more pleasing to the pallet.

so you're rushing home to eat a steak and your suggestion is to "leave it for an hour or two before cooking"? what kind of cretin wrote the script? also can you suggest what kind of meat comes to room temperature in an hour or two from the freezer? good grief.

Ronella Jay (2 months ago)
I only use cast iron pots and fry pans. I prefer to peel n cube potato's when making mashed potato's. At a medium heat covered in just enough water to steam the potato's. I always cover pots and fry pans with a ventilated lid. It has a window to release steam so foods don't bubble over.

I'm surprised they didnt mention cooking things sous vide. Most of this seems like pretty known info for those who like to cook. I'm sure those who cook know about sous vide as well, but I was hoping to learn a little more about it from this video. The music was distracting
Deb Stein (2 months ago)
Um... was really hoping for some good tips. Frying an egg and butter was not one of them. And letting the soup cool because it being too hot would interfere with tasting it was almost insulting. Darn it I really didn’t want to learn something.

Boss Claus (2 months ago)
want even better mashed potatoes? Don't boil them and throw all the flavor down the sink. Peel, slice and sous vide them, or even better, cook them in a pressure cooker with a cup of water and a half tsp of liquid smoke discarding half the water after they're finished. Then whip with butter and mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Add horseradish or wasabi if you want them to have a kick.

12: Really big thing they missed. actually its all wrong. doesnt matter when u prep the ingredients. just dont overwork the flour or you overwork the gluten and it prevents it from rising. As for "airy" the longer the dough ages the more the yeast takes affect. but yes room temp will help... somewhat

ChronisOfTheTwilight (2 months ago)
I don't want a Gourmet steak. I want a huge steak with grill marks and is made Medium rare on the Grill I have at home. Steaks aren't meant to be cooked in a pan. Cook em on a BBQ grill or I don't want it. Which is also the reason why I don't order steaks at restaurants. They just don't seem to taste right to me. They lack the grill char flavor. Just my own personal opinion.
