Steam is an efficient and moist method of cooking food. I often steam vegetables, but sometimes I use steam when I simply want to speed up cooking time.
For example, recently I was roasting a large pan of potatoes, and they were taking longer than the rest of the dinner. I added a little water to the pan and covered it with foil, and the potatoes were tender in no time.
I also do this with fried eggs. I start them out in the frying pan as usual, then add a little water, cover it with a lid, and turn the heat down. The eggs turn out just how I like them.
Do you like to use steam as a method of cooking?
