One-pan wonders Fuss-free meals for your sheet pan, Dutch oven, skillet, roasting pan, casserole, and slow cooker

Book - 2017

What's more appealing than a hearty meal prepared using just one cooking vessel? Yet too often, results are mushy and bland. To rethink one-pan cooking, America's Test Kitchen reimagined classics, streamlined techniques, and honed in on high-flavor ingredients. From hands-off pastas that cook in their sauce to skillet suppers that produce a main and sides, these recipes minimize effort while ensuring each element cooks perfectly. The result is a modern collection of 138 recipes that take the fuss out of making dinner, any day of the week. -- Page [4] of cover.

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

The editors and chefs at America's Test Kitchen continue their quest for the best and most flavorful recipe in this curated collection of over 100 dishes that can be prepared in a single vessel. Many, such as pulled pork, lasagna, paella, and beef stew, are no-brainers and are included here, but the team offers much more in terms of variety and flavor, such as a pork tamale pie prepared in a skillet; chicken leg quarters with cauliflower and shallots roasted on a sheet pan; and Korean-style beef short ribs with bok choy in a Dutch oven. Many come together fairly quickly and with a minimum of fuss, but a handful require some planning. The hearty Peruvian roast chicken with Swiss chard and sweet potatoes, for example, takes close to three hours to prepare, and Spanish chicken and saffron stew can take up to five hours in a slow cooker. Regardless, devotees are sure to appreciate ATK's fiendish dedication to flavor, and will be rewarded with the final result. Dishes are organized according to cooking vessel (Dutch oven, sheet pan, etc), allowing readers to skip to their preferred method quickly and easily. As always, the book is peppered with small but useful tips to ensure consistency and flavor: blooming herbs in butter to boost flavor; how to trim a flank steak for tacos; grating garlic and ginger instead of chopping, etc. It's a solid collection harried gourmands are sure to appreciate.

Review by Library Journal Review

Busy home cooks everywhere will be delighted that America's Test Kitchen has released a new cookbook which, as the title suggests, includes exhaustively tested and re-tested recipes across the breadth of possible one-pan equipment. Using their signature scientific approach to cooking, they've generated a list of proven winners, organized by which single pan you'll be using. Each section begins with a few words on cookware: tips for using it, and tips for purchasing with best value and performance in mind. "Weeknight friendly" recipes are noted, and the volume includes a wide range of dishes for vegetarians and carnivores alike, representing a variety of taste profiles, with color pictures throughout. Clear instructions mean this volume should be accessible to even beginning cooks. VERDICT America's Test Kitchen sets their sights on "the ultimate challenge"-a delicious, unfussy, efficient one-pan meal-and they succeed. This book will take weeknight dinners to a new level.-Courtney McDonald, Indiana Univ. Libs., -Bloomington © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
