Could you please explain these terms: deglaze, sauté, and sear.

Answer

Deglaze: To add wine or stock to a pan in which meat has been cooked to release the caramelised flavours.

Sauté: To cook slowly in a small amount of oil over low heat until all the liquid has evaporated.

Sear: To seal meat or fish over high heat and this process would lock in the moisture.
