  • Zrou should be cooked in a non-stick frying pan.
  • Defrost Zrou fully before cooking. Zrou cooks well with methods such as frying and roasting.
  • Zrou tends to absorb water while cooking, so it’s better to reduce or halve water volume while cooking. For best flavor, cooking time should be less than 10 minutes.
