Peeling garlic cloves.
To peel garlic cloves quicker, microwave them first for 10 seconds. They will pop out of their skin instantly.

Storing apples and carrots.
Don’t store apples and carrots in the same fridge compartment. The apples emit a gas that makes the carrots bitter.

An easy way to steam veggies.
Simply place a colander over a pan of boiling water, tip prepared veggies in and put a lid over the top for 10-12 mins. The veggies will be cooked and crunchy but be careful, as the colander will be hot!

How to cut meat into thin slices.
When cooking a Chinese beef stir-fry or Mongolian beef, you are required to cut the meat as thin as possible. This is easily attained by slicing the meat while it is partially frozen.

Tips for cooking beans.
When cooking beans, any additional ingredients, such as acidic substances, such as lemon juice, vinegar, tomatoes, ketchup or wine, should be added at the end of the cooking time, since acid makes the beans firm.
You could add a packet of seasoning after the beans are tender, as adding it too soon can inhibit the cooking process.
