Being a line cook may not be the most glamorous job in the kitchen, and they may do most of the work for little glory, but their on-the-job training makes them superhuman cooking machines.
Thrillist asked line cooks across the country to share their tips and tricks with the folks at home and their replies came out just right.
There are basic tips: only flip your steak or burger once while cooking to lock in flavor, always start with the dish that takes the longest to cook, and save time by microwaving potatoes.
And tricks that make life easier: use a ladle to perfectly poach an egg, always boil eggs in salt water so the shells peel easier, and use Tupperware lids to slice multiple cherry tomatoes or grapes in half fast.
