How Do You Saute Celery & Onions For Turkey Stuffing Recipe?
When you saute vegetables, it means that you are going to cook them in a large skillet over medium heat in some sort of fat (either butter or oil). For stuffing, it is delicious to cook the vegetables in butter because it gives a more home-cooked flavor to your stuffing.
Dice the onion and thinly slice the celery. You should make them all relatively the same size.
Turn on the stove and melt your butter. Once the butter is melted, add your vegetables (they should sizzle). Add a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper. Shake the pan around so that the vegetables cook evenly. Take out a wooden spoon and give them a stir so that they all evenly cook but none of them burn. Cook until the onions are translucent.
“Hi my name is Lori with Figs Catering in Austin, Texas on behalf of Expert Village today we are going to show you how to make a entire Thanksgiving meal. Now that my sausage is all nice and cooked, I’m going to go ahead and take it off of the fire and I’m going to place it into my bowl. Then I’m going to use the same pan for my onions and my celery. One of the things that you want to take into consideration. If your sausage has a lot of fat in it, this one did not have too much honestly, but if it has a lot of fat in it go ahead and drain it to get rid of that excess fat. So put this back on the fire and I got my onions and my celery and I’m going to put those on the same pan. I got that in a medium high heat and we are just going to cook them to a nice light brown color and in about 1 minute of so I’m going to go ahead and add the garlic. If I add the garlic now it may brown so we are going to hold off in that.
