Pronounce it: saw-tay

A French term used to describe a method for cooking foods in a shallow pan using high heat. The food is cooked in the pan uncovered, in a small quantity of butter or oil. Unlike stir-frying where the food is continuously turned, when sautéed the food is turned only once in the pan in order to cook both sides.
