I am a total newfag when it comes to cooking. Is there some kind of food that is easy to make, so I can get into the ,,World of Cooking?'' I can't even make a good omelette or fry chicken nuggets properly.
You can pan sear things witb relativa ease.
>Skillet on medium heat
>oil/butter/fat to lube pan
>put protein (beef/pork/chicken/fish) on skillet
>season with salt, pepper, and whatever other spices
>season second side
Try it a few times and you'll get the hang of it. You'll l learn that some things take more time but the basics are the same.
Once you can do that look into sauteeing which is similar but at a higher heat and more involved you don't burn what you're cooking.
Stir fries are probably one of the best ways to work out cooking basics if you're a hands on learner. The only way you can completely fuck it up is if you burn things or undercook meat, the solutions to which are: a) have a glass of water on hand to trickle in if you see or smell anything untoward, and b) cook it more.
Otherwise, it forces you to understand basic chopping, how long different things take to go from raw to mush, and how your particular pan and stove behaves in terms of heat.
