What can you cook in a Cast Iron Skillet?
There’s no limit to what you can cook in a Cast Iron Skillet, except perhaps one’s imagination!




Unlike other cookware (with thinner base), the level of heat doesn't fluctuate in a cast iron. Therefore, it is a great choice for foods that need to be cooked at high heat such as meats that need a hard sear but not scorched, or roasts that need to be browned before braising.

1. Browning Bonanza :

 

​​There’s everything to love about a cast iron skillet, especially the fact that it gets screaming hot and stays hot. Unlike other cookware utensils, it remains constantly and evenly hot, rendering whatever you are cooking a deep brown colour and crunchy crust. However, to get the most out of your cookware, you should preheat it well so that it has time to absorb the heat. Additionally, the cast iron is oven-safe, therefore, you can easily take your food from the stovetop into the oven for a delicious finish.  


  

2. Superb Stir-Fries :

 

​​Stir-fries are also great to prepare in cast iron cookware as its ability to hold heat is exceptional, cooking a proper stir fry in a few minutes, crisping the rice and veggies, while letting the veggies retain some crunch.


 

3. Relish Roasting :

 

​​If you prefer golden-brown roasted vegetables that have a crunchy exterior crust with evenly cooked interior, consider dumping all your other pans in favour of a cast iron skillet. This cookware is made to roast your veggies and meats ravishingly. The skillet is not scared of heat and it is the direct contact with a super-hot surface that imparts your food the envious browning.

    5. FAQ about Cast Iron Skillet :

     

    ​​Q: Is there anything that you should avoid cooking in a cast iron skillet?

    ​​A: Acidic foods such as tomatoes can damage the seasoning of your skillet. Additionally, the end result will also taste metallic, especially if the recipe has taken a long cooking time. Skip the cast iron to cook any acidic food and use stainless steel instead.

     

     

    ​​Q: Can you cook fish in a Cast Iron Skillet ?

    ​​A: Stay away from cooking delicate pieces of fish as fish generally cleave apart and flake into pieces when you are lifting it with a spatula.

     

     

    ​​Q: Can you scramble eggs on a Cast Iron Skillet ?

    ​​A: Firstly, a fry pan or tawa is more suited for this. Secondly, your cast iron cookware (whichever you choose) should be properly seasoned. Additionally, cast iron cookware doesn't have a smooth surface and eggs will more often than not get stuck in the pan’s crevices.
