4 Levels of Steak: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

    Everybody is saying Emily got too good, but she went to the store and picked out a 1/2 inch flank steak out of an entire wall of steaks. She’s got a ways to go.

    Steak in the U.S. does not use blood. they use a liquid called myoglobin i think

    This has almost nothing to do with skill and everything to do with cut and quality. Of course the flank will not be as good as a dry aged ribeye.

    i always root for the underdog Emily! she's so much more relatable to me on a Mom to Mom level.
    p.s. i just finished watching Rosemary Trout on an episode with Brad & Andy making the perfect turkey!
