    Ugh... This is a prime example of why I hate 'traditional' butchers/cooks.
    "There's one way to cook a steak."
    "Grills lines are diamonds, yes or no."
    "We do the old way, the right way."
    Hundreds of years of experimentation and research, by chefs and scientists/chemists/biologists alike, have proven you're WRONG!!! Different people like different things cooked different ways, there is no 'right way.'
    Anyone ever gave me a rare steak I'd tell 'em to take it back and finished cooking the damn thing. And no, I don't like shoe-leather; Contrary to popular belief, you can cook a steak well done without removing any of the moisture or flavor.

    I always love a good 12oz rump steak coated in a Jack Daniel, chilli sauce with a side of classical fresh peas and potato slices

    favorite: NY Strip Medium Rare but closer to rare than medium
    Least liked: Fillet because it has so little flavor and I want to taste meat not added seasoning
    Most Overrated: Ribeye because it has way too much fat and gristle and does not taste enough better than strip to be worth cutting out all the parts I will not eat.

    I’ve always been confused as to why most popular or hyped up steak houses don’t cook the steak by basting in butter with garlic and rosemary or thyme??

    Why did James put olive oil on his steak, then act like he didn't know why there was so much smoke?. Everyone knows you dry your meat if you want it to brown, ( get grill marks)... Jaime looks like the chef in this battle!!!

    My favorite steak would have to be eye round cooked well, glazed with raw honey and served on a bed of fresh potting soil.

    Jamie: Has the capacity to beat James in some field of cooking.
    Also Jamie: No confidence when it comes to Pass It On.

    That's why I changed to only making my steak sous vide. Too much "I don't know" and "I'm not sure" in the pan and oven cooking method.

    Best steak ever is a medium tomahawk ribeye served bone in.

  • Patrick Maher

    As James is a chef should he already know about steaks and how to treat it and that why would he need to go to a steak School to learn about it and why is he nervous about cooking it

    Mid rare bone in ribeye, I never understood the need for a sauce, if your steak is seasoned and cooked perfectly why ruin it by adding a sauce?

    So can anybody explain to me what is so important about diamond grill marks that the expert says if they aren't there that is a game over? I may just be ignorant, but isn't that just an aesthetic? To me, either way, a steak is a steak and I just want it to taste good!

    Some people remain adamant that you Never oil a steak, just the grill. These are also the people that ruin a steak by letting the meat burn onto the grill. I took grief for years seasoning and then oiling the steak-Then putting it on the grill.

    Jaime lost that battle as he tried to cook it the way he was told in Steak School. Had he done it his own way, it would have been no contest.

    diamond grill lines are overated. Give me a beautifully caramalised and dark brown sear any day. Not to mention twice cooked chips... nah fam gotta par boil those for perfect chips.
    Another thing i would do differently is sous vide. Especially for a rib eye which benefits greatly from low and slow cooking to break down the fat. Sous vide it with a clove of garlic, fresh rosmary and thyme, plenty of salt and pepper, and finally a wee splash of port.
