Air fryer does not idle guide to the fourth bullet!
Recently, I read a report that most Chinese people have the problem of "excessive fat intake", which is actually related to the preparation steps of Chinese food. Many dishes in Chinese food need to be fried at high temperatures to set the shape or pull the oil to enhance the flavor, and although the greasiness will be reduced if the dish is done well, the intake of fat is still a big problem.
▼ Master Wang is famous for using "wide oil" in his cooking from time to time
Traditionally, many dishes have to be cooked with heavy fire and the amount of fat directly determines whether a dish is delicious or not. In the home kitchen, we can do more small actions, such as frying instead of deep-frying in order to keep the deliciousness and healthier at the same time, and if we pursue lower oil, we can also use air frying to help us finish "deep-frying".
Today's recipe is generally Chinese, and Ailu is here to show you the "air-fried low oil version" of several common dishes on our dinner table. The cookware used is the Hayes K7 Food Lighter! Its innovative light-wave heating technology can quickly heat up, forcing out the fat and locking in the juices when air frying meat, and the next few dishes will be used to fully demonstrate this machine to you.
I believe no one can refuse crispy fried ribs! Don't look at Ailu all day long to promote beef and send a good price on beef, but in fact, my daily consumption of pork is not less than the amount of beef ~ remember in the second article of the not idle strategy Ailu wrote a guide to the production of roast pork ribs, this time to do a garlic bone!
The evergreen garlic bones and aged bones in Cantonese restaurants, we should not be unfamiliar, right? Fried crispy shell, the inside is soft and fatty pork ribs, the aroma of the marinade penetrates into the meat, a gentle tug can easily fall off the bone ~ general production of fried ribs always use more oil, today with the K7 food light machine air frying function to make, here's a look at this air-fried version of garlic bones ~
Ingredients: ribeye steak, garlic
Seasoning: barbecue sauce, oyster sauce, curd, soy sauce, cornstarch, glutinous rice flour
1. If you buy ribs from the market, wash and soak them to remove the blood, and then put a little baking soda in the water to soak them for half an hour. I used here is the Iberian black pig's ribs, I have absolute confidence in his tenderness ~ so I am directly marinated;.
2. Garlic into garlic paste, with barbecue sauce, oyster sauce, curd (southern milk will be better), soy sauce marinated in taste (can be overnight). Add 1:1 raw flour and glutinous rice flour, with a little water to grasp evenly.
Garlic tends to scorch and become bitter at high temperatures, so we use garlic paste to marinate here. Stroke off the garlic paste and sauce from the meat when arranging it into the pot, which can effectively maintain the selling and taste.
3. lined with greaseproof paper, yard on a baking sheet, air fry mode 150 degrees for 20 minutes.
Because air frying uses the fat of the ingredients themselves, so this time I chose relatively fatty ribs to make. Fatty ingredients not only make the finished product more crispy, the frying process can also force out the fat, low-fat and healthier.
Thanks to the advantages of K7 food light machine light wave fast heat and penetration, we can easily achieve the effect of crispy outside and tender inside when making meat, not easy to become dry. And like ribs, the meat is thicker parts, into the oven for 20 minutes to achieve a crispy appearance, the meat is also easy off the bone soft and tender.

Air Fried Eggplant Box
When cooking eggplant, people always say, "It's too much oil, isn't it?" We always say, "It's too oily!". Eggplant's porous and fluffy structure predestines it to eat a lot of oil, so when making various eggplant dishes, we always try to pre-treat it so that it eats less oil when it is put into the frying pan.
Eggplant box I believe we have all eaten, this is a very favorite dish when Ailu University ~ the eggplant cut into thick slices constantly open, stuffed inside the meat, and then wrapped in a coating of deep-fried, crispy outside and tender inside very delicious. Good to eat, because the eggplant "eat oil" property, at home to replicate this dish is actually not easy, expensive oil and effort, so I thought of using air frying instead of deep-frying practice, to do a simple to less oil version of the eggplant box, but also to test the K7 food light machine in the air frying vegetables how effective.
Ingredients: eggplant, meat froth, garlic, horse's feet, egg, flour
Seasoning: soy sauce, oyster sauce, pepper, sugar, chicken powder, cooking wine, cornstarch
1. eggplant selection of thick and large purple eggplant, washed and cut into continuous thick slices of slices, wrapped meat need to be used.
2. Pre-marinate the meat, add the above-mentioned seasonings, a little minced horse's feet and garlic and an egg white and whisk until gelatinous, stuff the eggplant box.
3. Make a batter for battering. Beat an egg, flour and starch 1:1, then add a little oil and stir well, note that the batter should not be too thin to facilitate the battering of the eggplant box.
4. Brush the frying net with a layer of oil to prevent staining. Batter the eggplant box evenly, you can use a brush to smooth all sides.
5. Air fry mode, 160 degrees for 20 minutes, crispy outside and tender inside the air fried version of the eggplant box out of the oven!
Will the meat be so thick that it will not be trapped? The answer is: not at all. k7's light wave tube + large fan design can be 360 ° circulation heat, not only do not need to turn halfway, but also allows the food to be evenly heated.
Compared to deep-fried eggplant boxes, air-fried eggplant boxes are definitely the ultimate less oil, hanging the battered skin charred and slightly crispy, the inside is super soft and juicy, a bite will immediately burst the degree of juice, the taste is very good ~ like eggplant boxes and fear of greasy friends must try!
Air Fry Tofu
Tofu can be said to be a very widely used ingredient in Chinese food, no matter what the practice is very delicious ~ in so many practices of tofu, deep-fried is definitely my favorite practice, the very famous "Phoenix fried dried beans" and "Puning fried tofu" in my hometown is a daily snack that we will buy at home every now and then.
In addition to eating it directly, fried tofu is also a great idea for cooking, such as tofu casserole, tofu with fire brisket, etc.
▼Last time, Ailu made a hot brisket and bean curd casserole, a dish that is usually sold as a plate of rice in various fast food restaurants in Guangdong, and is very popular.
So can food light machine make fried tofu? The taste of the finished product is not at all inferior to fried ones.
1. Cut the old tofu into pieces, wash them and soak them in water, about 5-10 minutes. This step is to remove the bean smell and brine smell from the tofu. Old tofu will taste heavier than young tofu due to the production process, and if it is not soaked or over water it is easy to eat bitterness;.
2. Dry the tofu cubes and place them on the frying basket to dry. Dry with paper towels if in a hurry, or place in front of a fan.
3. Brush with a thin layer of oil, put the tofu into the food light machine, and finish at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.
This tofu is more "meaty" and does not feel "soaked/raw" when you eat it. We didn't turn the tofu over during the cooking process, so you can see that the reverse side of the tofu is also nicely colored.
▼The reverse side
When freshly baked, the skin is as crispy as fried, while the inside is juicier and more solid, so it's not greasy to eat. However, air-fried tofu is recommended to be eaten while it is hot, unlike deep-fried, it will harden when it is cold and the crispy skin will become dry when it is fresh out of the oven, affecting the taste.
Let's mix one more tofu vinegar commonly used in Chaozhou home ~ you need to use garlic paste, white rice vinegar, chili powder, a little sugar and salt to neutralize the acidity.
This vinegar used to dip fried tofu first-class great ~ whether fried or air-fried out, can be used, if there is a little mint seedlings will be better (pity I planted mint early died ......).
Whether you're doing aroma pot or dry pot, cauliflower is always the no.1 side dish in my mind! Crispy slightly sweet taste of the stalks, fine cauliflower and can eat enough juice, salty and delicious ~ but dry pot is often heavy oil and spicy, not only is it difficult to do well without heavy mouth is also difficult to eat, so I had a whim, why not try an air-fried version of dry pot cauliflower? This will meet the diet people's mouth!
▼Dry pot made on a traditional stove
▼Air-Fried Version of Dry-Potted Cauliflower
Production and ingredients are also very simple ~ here we need to use the previous method in the first strategy to do the potato corner - shake it in a plastic bag ~
Ingredients: cauliflower, cilantro, garlic, oil drippings
Seasoning: chili powder, Pixian bean paste, soy sauce, cooking wine, oyster sauce, cumin
1. cut the cauliflower small and wash it, soak it in lightly salted water for 5-10 minutes, this step can remove the small worms that may hide on top of the cauliflower florets.
2. drain the cauliflower into a plastic bag, add the above seasonings in order of taste, sprinkle a little wine can play an aromatic role.
3. add cilantro, minced garlic and lard scraps, if you like spicy, you can put more millet spice, drizzle with a small circle of oil, tie the bag tightly and shake well.
4. Evenly place the cauliflower yard on the frying basket, send into the food light machine, air frying function 120 degrees fried for 10 minutes. Note that the temperature here can not be too high, our goal is to use the hot air of air frying to dry the cauliflower, to do similar to the effect of dry pan, the fire is too large not only easy to bake scorched, but also let the cauliflower overcooked, crispy feeling reduced.
10 minutes to get out of the pot! The actual test food light machine light wave fire is still very fierce, if you do not have the bottom of their own air fryer fire, I recommend trying to turn up the temperature a little bit, many short attempts until the taste and taste to a satisfactory degree. This time it's important to choose an air fryer with a visual glass window ~ this is one of the things I like more about the food light machine, you can observe the state of the food in real time, and the thickened door body can also prevent burns and ensure safety.
Finished product can see the water of cauliflower was well dried, now eaten is a little tough crisp, the material sauce is well wrapped in cauliflower, salty and delicious; the flavor of cilantro through the air frying well melted into the cauliflower ......
What? Reject cilantro? Look at me to a lethal amount of small green hat ~
Cheese Beef Patties
And finally, one more cheesy beef patty that I like so much~
I often use this dish for breakfast on the weekends, with milk to eat all morning can be full of energy! The main ingredients are beef and onion, but if you like, you can also fine-tune the ingredients and recipe according to your taste and ideas, such as adding corn and carrots and other vegetables, such as adding more kinds of cheese, adding bacon, etc. There is a lot of room for imagination.
Ingredients: beef, onion, garlic, mozzarella, cheese slices
Seasoning: salt, black pepper, paprika, soy sauce, white wine (no other substitution)
1. Choose a piece of fatty and lean beef grinded into meat froth spare. Recommended to use beef patties directly to make, fat to lean ratio of 37 points is better.
2. Finely chop the onion and fry it slowly in a frying pan over low heat until it becomes crispy. If the pursuit of lower fat health, onions choose not to oil or simply fried can be.
3. Add the beef strudel and onion crisp to the above-mentioned seasonings, stir slowly until gelatinous, sprinkle with some mozzarella.
4. baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper, roll the beef into balls and gently press them into patties and lay them flat on the greaseproof paper.
Air frying mode 180 degrees 15 minutes baking.
5. Cover with a small piece of cheese slices and return to the oven for 1 minute. If you are looking for a more beautiful state, you can use a spray gun to slightly bake the burnt spots.
This beef patty is inspired by Japanese hamburger steak, compared to the thick body of the hamburger steak, this beef patty is lighter and easier to make, the dish is fast, of course, delicious without losing points ~ like to eat beef, still thinking about how to deal with beef at home, learn quickly!
