4 Levels of Steak: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on Sep 19, 2019

    I wouldn't fault another channel for stealing the concept but having the chefs taste and rate each other's food without meeting initially

    Or... 3 ways to ruin a steak. Level 1 was probably the best cooking technique, just not the most amazing steak and ketchup with steak... Really? Level 2 was alright except you don't need to finish it off in the oven, you can cook an amazing steak just on a grill or pan and the so called pro chef... Just don't understand any of it lol
