One common complaint
by OAMC cookers is that sometimes meals can get overdone,
particularly when you make multiple batches of a dish, with
one to serve for that evening's meal while leaving another
one, two or three for a future meal from the freezer. And
it can be easy to overcook, since you are cooking it, then
it cooks again while reheating the dish for dinner after defrosting.
There is a trick
you can do to avoid overcooking, and it is pretty easy. Simply
set aside the portion for the freezer 3-10 minutes before
the dish is done, then finish cooking the one you are making
for that evening's meal. This means the ones for the freezer
are slightly underdone, and when you reheat it after being
in the freezer, you don't run the risk of overcooking it.
