Week 3: Pan Frying
Pan frying is a dry-heat method of cooking that relies on oil or fat as the heat transfer medium, and on correct temperature and time to not overcook or burn the food. Pan-frying diﬀers from sautéing in several important ways. Pan frying takes place at lower heat and longer cooking time. Although both involve cooking portion-size items of food over relatively high heat, pan-frying requires more fat because the food is not moved very much. The results should be an attractive crisp textured food with a moist interior.
