  1. Rescue the unaffected parts

    If you burned the bottom of a soup or stew, carefully pour the unburned portion into a clean pot without disturbing the bottom. For other dishes, try to remove as much of the burnt portion as possible.

  2. Add masking ingredients

    You can gradually add a small amount of sugar to soups or stews until the burnt taste is gone. Tomato puree, Worcestershire sauce or spices can often save slightly burnt meat.

  3. Transform the dish

    If a cut of meat is partially burnt and cannot be rescued, consider chopping it up, removing the burnt portion and making it into a stir fry or pasta dish. Whole burnt pieces of food can often be cut into pieces and transformed into another dish.
