How To Pan-Fry

Pan-frying is a culinary technique that relies on the use of dry heat & a small amount of fat to cook & crisp beef, poultry, pork, seafood or vegetables. Sometimes the food is coated in seasoned crumbs, flour or cornmeal, however sausages, bacon, herb encrusted fish & more many be added directly to hot, flat-bottomed skillets to brown the outside & bring internal temperatures of food up to safe levels. Often times, once meat has been removed from the pan, the drippings may be used to create a gravy with a few additional ingredients.

How To Pan-Fry

Fats such as butter & a variety of oils including canola or vegetable are good sources to use when pan-frying items is desired. It’s a bit gentler & an ideal cooking method in place of deep fat frying for certain foods such as Mexican Beef Milanesa or Chiles Rellenos since the batter or coating may not adhere if completely submerged.

A general rule of thumb to use when pan-frying is the desired cooking method in order to crisp thin pieces of meat with an exterior coating is to just coat the bottom of the skillet with oil or fat. For small pans, approximately 3 tablespoons or so will be enough whereas larger skillets may need up to a 1/2 cup particularly if two batches are necessary in order to complete the recipe. When cooking bacon & often times sausages, no fat is required as what is rendered from the food will naturally work to cook, brown & crisp it.
