Best Cooking Methods
The best cooking method for you is one you’re comfortable with and enjoy. But be aware of the pros and cons of various cooking options.
For example, grilling is the best way to cook large quantities of meat. And you can even throw potatoes and veggies on at the same time.
However, it’s also easier to overcook meat on the grill, which could make it super dry later in the week. I’ve found that a pellet cooker works best for maximizing quantity without drying things out.
Stove Top / Oven
The oven is another go-to cooking method because it’s multifunctional, and nearly everybody has one.
Also, sauteing meat on the stovetop in cooking oil keeps it moist. And you can even mix in veggies to create a stir fry.
On the downside, you’re limited to a smaller number of meals based on your pot or pan size.
The oven is perfect for baked chicken breast or potatoes and easy to use. The only drawback is that it can take slightly longer than other methods.
Rice Cooker / Pressure Cooker
And for cooking carbs, investing in a rice cooker or instant pot is worth it. These appliances save time and cook to perfection every time.
In addition, these cookers typically come with a basket for steaming veggies while you cook rice or other foods. So they can save time by combining foods as well.
