Sautéing is a quick way to prepare a meal on the stovetop. Steaks, chops, cutlets, seafood, and vegetables all cook in record time using just a skillet, a bit of oil, and pair of tongs. Sautéing also builds flavor in sauces, soups, and stews. This lesson will teach you the principles of successful sautéing as you learn how to sauté chicken, vegetables, and meat.
