When cooking, vegetable and meat need to be boiled and cooked well to avoid indigestion and food poisoning.
Here are a few tips on how to cook different foods. Food preparations containing beef must be cooked under direct heat for 6 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the slice. Pork needs to be cooked between 10 to 20 minutes depending on whether it is pre-cooked or fresh, under direct heat.
Chicken and fish that are boneless and tender can be cooked under indirect heat for 25 minutes whereas bone-in chicken and other sea food must be cooked on direct heat for 10 to 12 minutes.
Vegetables take more time to cook and hence need to be cooked under direct heat for 10 to 15 minutes.
