This is how you can organize your fridge perfectly!

This is how you can organize your fridge perfectly!

Everything in your fridge probably has its place. We don’t just fit everything in and ‎hope that nothing falls out when we open the door. Instead, we place them on certain ‎shelves even if we do have to be creative with space sometimes.‎ We’ve been taught that food needs to go in a certain order when it comes to the fridge ‎and this is why we do it. But what if you’ve been organizing your fridge wrong for your ‎whole life?‎

Indeed, sometimes we put food on certain shelves that could be reducing its shelf life. ‎So the way you’re storing things in your fridge might be partially responsible for the ‎amount of food that you throw away. This is why you should be careful storing your ‎food so that you can actually cook it using your brand new Expertise pots and pans ‎gifted by your mother in law last Ramadan.‎

So what are we storing incorrectly in our fridges?

Milk
Everyone knows that milk goes in the fridge door, right? Wrong! Storing your milk in the ‎door of your fridge is the wrong place because the door is the warmest part of the ‎fridge. Your milk needs to be kept nice and cold or you will end up accidentally ‎drinking a slightly sour cup of coffee in the morning before the expiry date has been ‎reached.‎ Just store your milk on the middle shelf of your fridge and it will stay fresh for longer.‎

Cheese
Like milk, we might keep cheese in the little compartments in the fridge door. However, ‎cheese should be kept as cold as possible so place your hard cheeses on the middle ‎shelf next to your milk. And remember, fresh cheese means delicious mac n cheese for ‎dinner so it should not be spoiled!‎ The same goes for yogurts and eggs, so keep this shelf as a primarily dairy shelf. ‎However, butter and soft cheeses can go in the fridge door as this will stop them from ‎going too hard.‎

Raw meat
If you’re storing your raw meat and fish on the bottom shelf of your fridge, you’re right. ‎This is the best and coldest part of the fridge, so no risk of juices dripping onto other ‎food, which causes dangerous contamination. It is also important to package it all up ‎so it’s totally sealed so it will stay edible for longer.‎

Pre-cooked foods
Any that is already cooked such as chicken kabsa leftovers should stay on the top shelf of ‎your fridge. This shelf has the most consistent temperature, which ensures that ‎bacteria does not grow too quickly.‎

Now that you know where everything should be going in your fridge, it’s time to get ‎rearranging!‎

Grill meat to prepare rib eye steaks with chimichurri sauce

Main Course
Number of people: 2

Cost: Expensive

Difficulty: Easy

Preparation time: 15 min

Cooking time: 5 min

Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) red vinegar
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) each salt and pepper, divided
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) hot pepper flakes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) very finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 rib eye steaks, about 175 g each

Instructions
Stir the vinegar with the lemon juice, garlic, half each salt and pepper, the hot pepper flakes and bay leaf. Whisk in the olive oil until well combined; stir in the parsley. Let stand for at least 15 minutes; discard the bay leaf.

Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towel. Sprinkle the remaining salt and pepper over both sides of each steak.

Select the "Red Meat" program and press "OK". Lightly grease the cooking plates with cooking spray. Once the purple indicator light has stopped flashing, place the steaks on the grill and close the lid.

Cook until the indicator light has changed to the colour of desired doneness; yellow for rare, orange for medium or red for well done. Transfer the steaks to a plate and tent with foil. Rest for 5 minutes. Serve the steaks with the chimichurri sauce on the side.

Tips: Enjoy a late summer harvest inspired supper by serving the steaks with corn on the cob and sliced fresh field tomatoes. Substitute any premium grilling steak such as strip loin for the rib eye steaks if preferred.

Salmon and cream sauce

Main Course

Number of people: 4

Cost: Expensive

Difficulty: Easy

Preparation time: 15 min

Cooking time: 10 min

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup (50 ml) chopped green onion
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) lemon juice
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) finely grated lemon zest

Cook until the indicator light has changed to the colour yellow. Serve the salmon with the reserved sour cream mixture on the side.

Tips: Removing the salmon during the yellow stage of cooking results in a restaurant quality salmon fillet with a slightly coral and moist center. For an elegant dinner, serve the salmon with steamed baby potatoes and wilted leafy greens such as Swiss chard or spinach.
