Definition: Deglaze


The process of removing food, usually meat, that is left/stuck in the pan after sauteing. A small amount of liquid (usually wine or broth, but it depends on the recipe) is poured and heated in the pan. It is then stirred up to remove the now loosened food from the pan, the end result is usually the basis for a flavorful sauce.
