There are a lot of people who like food, but not many who can do it well. As a foodie, I have been learning to cook on the road, but cooking skills are very unstable, sometimes out of a delicious meal, did not play well when it will also engage in some dark cuisine.
We cook at home, it is impossible to do the same color and flavor as the hotel, but eat healthy. Many dishes can be made at home without too many ingredients and with a few tips, they can be very tasty. Here are twelve cooking tips that I know and have personally tried to be useful.

Third, the eggplant because it contains iron, it is easy to oxidize and turn black after cutting. Cut eggplant should be fried immediately or soaked in water after cutting. When frying eggplant, putting a little vinegar can be a good way to avoid the eggplant from turning black.
Fourth, stir-fry bean sprouts must be used with high heat, quickly stir-fry so that each bean sprout is heated evenly. Put a little vinegar when frying to remove the astringent taste of bean sprouts and keep them fresh and crisp.

Six, when stewing fish soup, you need to use cold water, water boiling and skim off the froth, can better remove the fishy smell. As the fish protein slowly solidifies, the nutrients can be better released into the fish soup. Use high heat for thick soup and low heat for clear soup.

Ten, before stir-frying sliced beef, after the beef is cut, use beer to mix the flour into a paste, then put the beef together and mix well, so that the beef sticks to the batter, then marinate for about 30 minutes. The enzymes in beer can make the proteins break down, which will increase the tenderness of the beef.
