Oil AND Butter???

Quick Cooking Tip:

Oil AND Butter!

Butter gives a dish delicious flavor and richness.  However, if you try to sear meat, or sauté anything in a skillet over medium heat or higher, your butter will burn.  And yes, it will definitely be adding flavor to your dish, but not the kind you’re looking for!

Oil has a higher smoke-point than butter, so by adding butter to the oil in the pan, it allows for the oil to coat the pan and in turn allows the butter to melt without burning.

It lets you heat the butter to a higher temperature without smoking.

Try it!
