What do you prepare in a frying pan?
First of all, you can prepare countless delicious dishes with a frying pan. The thick bottom of a casserole dish conducts and retains the heat well, so that you can cook with a casserole on both the hob and in the oven. The casserole is ideal for roasting meat, fish, poultry and game. You can sear the meat at a high temperature by adding oil or butter to the pan. Because a casserole can retain its heat for a long time, it is perfect for simmering meat. The meat then absorbs all the herbs and other ingredients well and you create a very tasty piece of meat. You can not only prepare meat in a casserole, you can also use it to make soups, sauces or dishes from the oven.
