sauté (third-person singular simple present sautés, present participle sautéing, simple past and past participle sautéed or sautéd)

  1. (transitive) To cook (food) using a small amount of fat in an open pan over a relatively high heat, allowing the food to brown and form a crust stopping it from sticking to the pan as it cooks.
    • 1906, Fannie Merritt Farmer, “Lamb and Mutton”, in The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book, section “Lamb en Casserole”, page 220:
      Parboil three-fourths cup carrot, cut in strips, fifteen minutes; drain, and sauté in one tablespoon bacon fat to which has been added one tablespoon finely chopped onion. [] Cook until potatoes are soft, then add twelve small onions cooked until soft, then drained and sautéd in two tablespoons butter to which is added one tablespoon sugar.
