This is a tad early, so remember tonight's dinner doesn't count. This week is Pan-frying. Pan-frying is a technique that uses very little butter or oil. Here is a Wiki link that tells more: Pan frying - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here is an explanation of the difference between this and sauteing: The Difference Between Saute, Pan Fry and Stir Fry | Reluctant Gourmet

Post your pictures and recipes in this thread as the week goes on.

Does it matter whether it's a shallow or deep fry?

Pan-frying is neither shallow nor deep-frying. The links above talk about what it is and what qualifies.

Pan fried breaded Pork Chops

Breading: Breadcrumbs, Sweet Paprika, Salt, Pepper, Onion powder, Garlic powder, Mustard powder
Pork chops
Egg free Mayo

Smash Pork chops to about 1/4in thick, dip in mayo making sure that full coverage is achieved. Dip in breading making sure to cover both sides. Let sit for 10- 15min. Pan fry each side until brown. (About 3 min per side if they are nice and thin, don't use much oil or they will burn, I use just enough to coat the pan lightly)

Pan Fried Carrots I used this recipe as a base but I used olive oil, and drizzled a little local ( I find it not as sweet as the honey you buy in stores) warm honey over them when they were done.

$2 Side: Pan Fried, Buttery Carrots

Tunisian Zataar Rubbed Pork


For Christmas DH got me some amazing locally made spice mixes, one of them being Tunisian Zataar roasting rub. Tonight I seasoned some pork rib chops with sea salt and 1-2 Tbsp. of the rub. Just rubbed it right in with my hands and then DH cooked it up in the cast iron skillet. With the cast iron, we don't even bother with any oil in the pan- it just browns right up beautifully in the well seasoned pan.


I served it with caramelized sliced onions, mushroom risotto, and steamed broccoli with bleu cheese butter. Oh my head... so delicious.

It was even kid approved, though he spoiled his dinner with cheddar bunnies, so he didn't eat a ton, but he liked everything on his plate.

meat in a pan Pan frying has proven more difficult for me. I was thinking shallow fry I guess.



Meat
olive oil
salt

I never add anything but salt because other seasonings burn.

Note this was super thick and didn't work well.

I think the difference is that this isn't technically "frying" like when you cook something in a lot of oil. It's closer to sauteeing in my mind. Just a little oil or butter or nothing, a hot pan, and a larger piece of meat to brown it up delicious and sear in that flavor.

At least, that's what I consider pan frying!

Lesha, I'd count an omelet. It is one big item cooked in a little bit of butter or oil.

Yay!! My 3 yr old requested hotdogs for breakfast and I said no we dont have hot dogs for breakfast, we have eggs. He said can't you put hotdogs in an egg?

Hmmmmm.....


So here it is.... Mason's Hotdog & Cheese Omelet



Its the first omelet Ive ever made that didn't turn into scrambled eggs.

All I did was mix the eggs (4) in a bowl added some salt & pepper then poured it into my none stick frying pan. I didn't use any oil or butter, my new pan is that freakin awesome!

Cook it til the eggs set and I flipped it over like a pancake, then sprinkled cheese on it, added diced hotdogs on one side. When I thought the bottom would be done, I folded it in half. Wah la!

Yummy Honey mustard chicken
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp hot paprika
1/4 tsp sweet paprika
1/4 tsp salt

Mix together, i usually have to microwave it a teeny tiny bit to get the honey to turn liquid
Pour over flattened chicken breasts and let marinate for atleast 1 hr

Pan fry chicken breasts until done, I just temp them to check I don't pay attention to how long on the clock. I served it with mashed potatoes and peas mmm

Another Mason idea....

He asked for a grilled cheese with turkey and ranch dressing.

So I put ranch dressing on both sides of the bread, layered in some cheese & turkey. Then instead of using butter to "fry" it I just spread some ranch dressing on the outside of the bread and tossed it in the pan.

It turned out pretty and smelled amazing! Im thinking of trying the same technique with tortillas for a ranch chicken wrap or something I dunno Im thinking... lol



Forgive my plating, it was insisted on.

Tomato Bacon Chicken





Chicken marinated in hidden valley's Garden Tomato & Bacon dressing then pan fried. Served with cucumber, tomato salad. This is what me and Mason had for lunch, first time IVe ever used the dressing as a marinade and it was fantastic. Mason wont touch the dressing but he ate the entire chicken breast, didnt have a clue it was the dressing!

I swear most recipes I find called "pan fried" are really shallow frying. Not really a recipe but pan fried potatoes, served with scrambled eggs and chile verde



Fried cheese (this is a new recipe) served with spaghetti





Fried cheese Oliver's twist season 1 episode 13 Bollywood

Chinese Chicken with broccoli


I used this marinade.

Asian Grilled Chicken | Skinnytaste

Then pan fried it with no oil, until brown.

Garlic Broccoli

Steamed broccoli
1 tb soy sauce
2 garlic cloves minced
1 1/2 tsp oil
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
3/4 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp lemon juice


The chicken was really moist, I will definitely make it this way again!



Apple Crepes





Crepes

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
4 large eggs
3 tablespoons melted butter


Combine flour, sugar, salt, milk, four eggs and the melted butter in a blender, blend for about 3 minutes.

Heat a 12 inch non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1/3 cup batter and swirl to completely cover skillet. Cook until underside of crepe is very lightly starting to brown, about 2 minutes.


I used this recipe to make the filling.

Pike's Gooey Syrup Recipe - Allrecipes.com

Then I TRIED to make a whipped topping with evaporated milk & powdered sugar, but it didnt whip as the recipe said it would...so I just drizzled it on top of the crepe, then sifted on some powdered sugar for pretty.

This was yummytastic, Mason approved. Its seriously loaded with sugar though, not good for the every day!

My dish



Pan-fried pork chops (seasoned with Chipotle, cornstarch, and garlic), Zucchini (method was closer to pan-fried than sauteed though it was the smaller pieces), and cheesy mashed potatoes

Pan-Seared Talapia

Pan-Seared Tilapia Recipe - Allrecipes.com

Instead of salt and peppering the fillets I just salted them and then added some lemon pepper seasoning to the flour. I probably should have just used the lemon pepper seasoning directly on the fillet as they didn't pick up much of the seasoning in the flour. I served the tilapia with barley seasoned with lemon and parsley and salad.

Do you have a recipe for the evaporated milk concotion? DH has a can of evaporated milk his sister gave him (Don't ask, it is a long annoying story) and would love to use it in something for him.
