Cooking Basics

Pork - making thin by pounding

Pound the pork with a rolling pin or bottle to make it thinner. If you pound the meat directly, it may stick to the rolling pin or bottle, so cover with plastic wrap before pounding. This method is used to prepare thin cutlets and for use with other ingredients in sandwiches or deep-frying, or when rolled then cooked together with other ingredients.

Pork loin - removing sinew / silver skin

There is a tough connective tissue (sinew also called silver skin) between the fat and pink meat of the loin. This portion will not melt away (as fat does) but rather will harden and twist when cooked. Making several cuts into the sinew with the tip of a knife will prevent this and also improve the texture of the meat.

Tomatoes - wedge cut

Cut the tomato in half lengthwise, then insert the knife in a v-shape on both sides to remove the stem. Insert the knife from the center of the cut surface and cut into equal-size wedges.
