Deglazing is the process of adding liquid to the pan, then stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan to remove the browned bits. Once this is accomplished -- usually in a matter of seconds -- the mixture can be used as a starting point for a delicious gravy or sauce. A word of caution: A great deal of steam forms when you add liquid to a hot pan. Stand back and keep your pouring hand as far away from the inside of the pan as possible.
