Leaving less fat in the pan

Fat rules.

Most of my cooking operations involves boiling/steaming veges in one saucepan, and cooking meat in the other frypan - then combining them both in the larger at the end and emptying into my eating bowl.

The only thing that distresses me with my cooking is looking at my cooking pans afterwards and seeing all gorgeous droplets of fat left behind captured on all surfaces, which no amount of scraping with my wooden spoon will result in their transfer into my bowl. I often find myself adding coconut fat directly to my bowl at the end rather than cooking with it to prevent it becoming the aforementioned waste. I feel like I need some bread or somthing to mop it up with but can't think of a paleo-auto alternative?

How do you guys prevent waste in your cooking, or am I being over the top?

p.s using teflon.

Use a silicone spatula, they get every delicious drop out of the pan, and it makes washing the pan so much easier! You can pick one up for a few dollars and they hold up to really high heat as well.

A spatula works great and what about your fingers: just lick it out :-)

This is my usual method, but I cook my veg to death because that is what works for me.

low heat, ghee (or fat) in pan, spices, veg...cook. when veg is almost done, I add meat and finish off on low heat.

in short: cook veg in fat.

(I do cook chicken in a separate pan, but I don't have much fat go to waste because it's chicken)

I am sure some other creative folk will have some winning gravy recipes for ya. That would be another option if you like steaming so well. Learn how to deglaze and use that leftover fat to make sauce for your veg or meat.

Enjoy!
