what hacks do you guys use to substitute for various kitchen appliances?
For example, I find putting a little liquid in a pot (usually oil-water mix with plenty of herbs and spices) and then a ton of meat on top of that, putting a cover on (sometimes slightly ajar) and leaving the whole thing on low heat for a long time does basically exactly what a slow cooker does--though slightly less safely since it's on a stove.
Do you guys have any good hacks for say:
I know alton brown (food network guy) has some cool tips.
One little hack for cooking scrambled eggs/omelettes that works really well is to heat the pan up very high before adding the eggs. This makes the clean up a LOT easier than putting the eggs before the pan is super hot. No longer have to scrape the pan.
I use my cast iron skillet and the broiler on my gas stove to make awesome chicken drumsticks/legs. They taste just like rotisserie because I just leave the lard in the bottom of the skillet from breakfast. The chicken gets cooked from both sides and the skin gets nice and crispy. Yum! Works with pork loin too.
