Cooking efficiently also means making sure that nothing gets wasted. You can turn cooking juices into delightful sauces! Once your meat is cooked, pour the cooking juices into a small saucepan and add a little wine. Simmer over high heat until the liquid has reduced by half, then add cream, salt and pepper to taste.
You can also use the bones from a roast or a veal chop to make a homemade broth. Just place them in a saucepan with a carrot, an onion and a stalk of celery, cover everything with water and simmer for about 3 hours. Filter the broth and use it to make soup or store in the freezer for later. Simple, isn't it?
