Rehash It is the name that receives a gastronomic preparation that consists of fry tomato, onion, garlic and other ingredients , usually in olive oil . The idea is that solid foods fall apart when they lose their liquid and that all the preparation is transformed into a sauce which can be added to a stew, a paella or another dish.
The refrito, also known as stir fried , usually prepared over low heat in a pan. It is possible to season the ingredients with ground chili pepper , peppers , coriander , Salt and Pepper . There are those who, instead of olive oil, use another type of oil (corn, sunflower, etc.) or butter (butter).
Depending on the diet and of the culinary knowledge, the refrito can be the base of a wide and varied number of dishes. For example, to prepare the filling of a pie or salty patties, since the limit is set by one's creativity, it is very convenient start with a refrito and then add more specific ingredients , such as textured soy, dried seaweed or tofu.
In the case of paella, it is worth mentioning that there are several recipes according to the region and the customs of each family. Broadly speaking, however, the refrito is usually the first step of cooking, since it is in this kind of sauce that the raw rice is poured so that it is cooked over low heat. While some people prefer to start cooking rice separately, it is very important that much of this process is taken in conjunction with the rest of the ingredients so that they permeate each other's flavor .
A basic tip so that the refried is tasty and well cooked is to give each ingredient its time to start cooking and soften before taking the next. For this there is a little trick, which consists in ordering the vegetables from the hardest to the softest, or from the one that takes the most time to cook at least, and always respect this order When cooking. For example, some people start with the carrot, then they throw the pepper, the onion and, finally, the eggplant; if there are mushrooms, it should be taken almost at the beginning, while mushrooms can go to the end.
Although it is a simple procedure, many people find it quite tedious and difficult to elaborate successfully, since they do not have the necessary patience to take care that it does not pass or that the ingredients do not burn and adhere to the pan . That is why it is advisable to establish and respect an order, always keep the fire at a temperature media and constantly monitor; a well-made stir-fry is one in which all the vegetables have been combined in a thick sauce, and for this it is essential to stir it very often during cooking.
In another sense, a rehash is something that is formed from scraps of things already used . The most common use of the notion is used with reference to the television program, work theater or publication that is created by combining fragments of previous editions or broadcasts.
An example of refrito occurs when in a TV series , characters "Remember" events that starred in the past. In this way, the viewer observes the repetition of fragments of programs already issued where "Happened" such events.
Suppose, in the chapter 150 of a series , the main character remembers when he got married (event issued in the chapter 32 ), had a son (chapter 41 ), got divorced (chapter 72 ) and remarried (chapter 125 ). He chapter 150 , therefore, it will be a rehash of the chapters 32, 41, 72 and 125 .
