Kitchen Tips Tuesday- Chop chop!

Saving time in the kitchen by chopping effectively is a great way to save time while reusing a cutting board (as to not make even more dishes to wash!)

I like to cut up ingredients in an order as to not mix flavors I don't want mixing or require frequent washing of cutting boards or several cutting boards. For example, when making Beef Stroganoff and brocolli for dinner, I start by cutting up the broccoli to be steamed. Setting that aside, I move on to slicing mushrooms after a quick wipe of a paper towel. I then move on to the garlic and onions so that the vegetables have not been coated with their taste, but the meat can be mixed up on the remains of the garlic and onions since the flavor is wanted in the meat. Since the meat is the last thing cut up, there is no need for an additional cutting board or a need to wash the board to prevent contamination. It makes chopping and preparing for the meal go quickly and with less items to clean up at the end!
