I left the pot open but there was still too much water. I turned it up to high heat but the meat started to become dry. Any other suggestions?
hmm, other taking some out I see no other way!
If it was a case of sauce not thickening up then i would have say just let it simmer on a low fire but in your case you are saying that you have too much water, then just dump some out sweetie. no harm no foul!♥
p.s. never cook any meat on a high fire, it will dry out...always cook stews & meats on a low simmering fire even if it is boiling...just keep it on a low fire to simmer& slow cook.
Minced meat. I was making shepherd's pie. And meat can become dry even if there's water. At a high temp things become dry.
Yeah, i kinda learned that the hard way. Luckily this didnt dry out. Thanks, i'll try to just leave it.
What were you cooking? And how did it become dry if there was too much water?
Let it cook down. More the water will evaporate cause of the heat.
Drain the food to remove any excess water?
