4 Levels of Steak: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on Sep 19, 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of steak. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which steak was the best?

  • IrradiatedMushroom

    To my previous comment this is women cooking steaks, not that there's something wrong with that but, men cooking steaks is awhole different show and you should definitely stop pushing the femal-first agenda cuz COOKING IS DOMINATED BY MEN FOR A FECKING REASON.

  • IrradiatedMushroom

    NO. Just no. No no no n o n o n o. STOP.
    You need to get far more different styles if you want the differentiation or just have a sous vide with different marinades or HOT skillets, or semi-pans this is tree different pan cooks doing steak...
    This is why people are going vegan, no-one knows how to cook a good fecking steak.

    I'm sorry you shouldn't need sauce for a dry-aged ribeye. I like the sous vide. No marinade. Respect the beef. Sear that baby with butter. At the most compounded butter.

    Bleu cheese butter hurts people who are allergic to it 😂
    Sorry I just laughed when she said that since I'm allergic. Not trying to be rude just thought it was really funny.

    no 👏 No 👏 NO 👏. I don't understand why this is a thing. 0:58 The bone does NOT impart more flavor! Maybe I'd understand if she said the meat on the bone is delicious. But there are no juices/marrow magically being injected into the meat through the bone, making it more delicious.

    Those lv 3 chefs that cooks and let the marinate rest for like, 24 hours. Do they simply leave the studio after cooking for 10 minutos to come back the other day? How hard is that?
