  • Wtf is wrong with all of these folks?! Salt, pepper and butter. Quarter inch sear and served rare or med rare. Steak doesn't need a sauce

  • 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.

  • 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.
