One-Pan Wonders: Fuss-Free Meals for Your Sheet Pan, Dutch Oven, Skillet, Roasting Pan, Casserole, and Slow Cooker (Paperback)
I have grown fond of America's Test Kitchen recipes. America's Test Kitchen, publisher of Cook's Illustrated magazine, is a live kitchen in which cooks prepare a recipe over and over until they are satisfied with the results and understand why it works. These "Why This Recipe Works" notes are included in each of the 138 recipes in this wonderful new cookbook. Preparing a complete dish in only one pan has a great deal of appeal for home cooks looking to streamline their time in the kitchen.
What makes “One-Pan Wonders” a standout in a crowded field of single-pot cookbooks are the separate chapters or sections devoted to the various types of cooking vessels, including Dutch oven, roasting pan, skillet, casserole dish, sheet pan and slow cooker.
All the recipes are deceptively simple, in terms of preparation and ingredients, yet are packed with flavor. There are many classic recipes, such as tamale pie and pulled pork, but be sure to try the chicken, sweet potato and Swiss chard stew with cheddar biscuits baked on top and the scallops baked with Israeli couscous, leeks and tarragon-orange vinaigrette.
Overall, this enticing collection is one tat both vegetarians and carnivores alike will enjoy.— From Book reviews: Recipe book helps change game
In One-Pan Wonders, you will discover over 130 meticulously tested recipes that deliver fresh, fuss-free meals from a single vessel. These recipes been tailored to highlight each vessel's strengths, from imparting a deep, flavorful sear on chicken breasts to roasting a turkey breast above bread stuffing to turning out supremely tender slow-cooked beef. And each recipe is engineered to ensure every component of the meals turns out perfectly cooked and ready to eat at the same time. The result? An authoritative resource for preparing simple yet satisfying meals seven days a week. When you think about cooking dinner, multiple pots and pans and a lot of multitasking (and cleanup) are probably quick to come to mind. Even a simple meal of chicken and a vegetable can require use of one pan for the chicken and another for the side dish. With this in mind, we set out to streamline dinner with a fresh, modern collection of recipes make the most of your Dutch oven, sheet pan, skillet, roasting pan, casserole dish, and slow cooker to deliver dinner using just one pot (no cheating ) and a minimum of hands-on time. These recipes simplify meal prep, but that doesn't mean we've sacrificed flavor. From Skillet Spanikopita to Sheet Pan Beef Fajitas to Indian-Style Vegetable Curry, we narrowed our ingredient lists to focus on delivering bold, fresh taste in every dish. Each recipe was tested (and re-tested) with the home cook in mind, and only the most flavorful meals made it onto these pages.
