What is the healthiest oil to cook with?

Question by Nicole M: What is the healthiest oil to cook with?
I am trying to eat healthier and cook healthier but I dont really no which oil I should be using. I am currently using shortening as my main oil when I cook chicken and burgers and stuff and I am pretty sure that is not healthy at all. So i was thinking like olive oil or something like that would be healthier. What do you think?

Answer by Eden
Olive oil is the healthiest oil to use for cooking. For baking, you can use vegetable oil or applesauce.

For stir fries, try using Pam in a non-stick pan.

What is a healthier way to cook a baked potato?

Question by Alex Arulf: What is a healthier way to cook a baked potato?
Is it healthier to cook a potato in the oven or microwave?

Best answer:

Answer by Dottie R
Either way is healthy. Just scrub the potato, poke it with some fork holes so the steam can escape, then bake.

I much prefer the texture of a baked potato done in the oven. The insides are fluffier and the skin can get crispy. But there’s no difference in health.

No need to oil the skin or wrap in foil. Just don’t load it up with butter or sour cream when serving and the baked potato is very healthy. Lots of nutrients in the skin also!

What is the best way to cook barbecue sauce bacon wrapped shrimp?

Question by nickic687: What is the best way to cook barbecue sauce bacon wrapped shrimp?
No matter how high I cook it on, the bacon will not crisp. I have tried low fat bacon and I have tried a cooking rack. All on 350 to broiling and still can not get crisp outsides which also overcooks the shrimp.

How to cook a london broil?

Question by Val: How to cook a london broil?
I have cooked london broil in the past and it has always come out tough and dry. Do you know any marinades that might help or any cooking tips at all. I bought it cuz it was on sale, I just want to make it edible. Any advice, Thanks

Best answer:

Answer by Smiley Traffic
The best marinade I’ve ever used is Buttermilk just plain butter milk for around 24 hours.

Hope this answers your question.

A London broil is a great way to cook steak. Note that I said a “way to cook.” In other words, it’s a method, not a specific cut of meat. This distinction has confused many a novice cook.

Adding to the confusion, some butchers will call a cut of meat “London broil.” Usually, though, the cut of beef used for a London broil is flank steak, although other cuts, notably top round steak, may be substituted.

Flank steak is naturally tough, so you need to tenderize it (by pounding with a mallet) or marinate it, or both, before cooking with it. To turn it into a proper London broil, you … broil it. Makes sense, right? But not so fast … you can also grill it and still call it a London broil.

Here are two recipes, one for broiled London broil, and the other for grilled London broil.

London Broil (Broiled)

Ingredients

<>1 beef flank steak (1 to 2 pounds)

<>1/3 cup Italian salad dressing

<>2 tablespoons red wine or red wine vinegar

1 clove garlic, minced

2 tablespoons cooking oil

Directions

1. Combine salad dressing, wine or wine vinegar, garlic and cooking oil in a bowl to make a marinade.

2. Make several shallow cuts on both sides of the steak. Place the meat in a baking dish.

3. Brush the steak with the marinade; be sure to coat both sides. Cover pan with plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator and let marinate for 1 hour.

4. Remove from refrigerator. Pour off excess marinade.

5. Preheat oven broiler. Place pan with steak approximately 3 inches from top heat. Cook 5 to 8 minutes per side (to medium doneness).

6. Cut steak into slices and serve.

London Broil (Grilled)

Ingredients

3/4 cup cooking oil

3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons red wine or red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons soy or Worcestershire sauce

1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper

1 tablespoon parsley flakes

1 flank steak (1 to 2 pounds)

Directions

1. Combine all ingredients except the meat in a bowl to make your marinade.

2. Make several shallow cuts on both sides of the steak and place in a baking dish. Try for a cross-hatching effect with several overlapping, diagonal cuts.

3. Brush steak with marinade, making sure to coat both sides. Cover pan with plastic wrap, place in refrigerator and let marinate for at least 1 hour.

4. Grill steak over hot charcoal or other high heat for 5 to 8 minutes per side, depending on the degree of doneness desired. Baste with leftover marinade if you wish.

5. Remove steak from grill, slice into thin strips, and serve.
