Here’s a video that goes against convention when it comes to cooking a piece of steak.
The video looks at two methods of cooking a piece of steak, one from frozen and one that has been allowed to thaw.
Standard practice would usually involve allowing a steak to defrost before cooking but Dan Souza, senior editor at Cook’s Illustrated, claims that cooking a frozen steak without allowing it to thaw actually brings better results.
He argues that frozen steaks taste better, that they don’t reduce in size as much as a thawed steak and that the frozen steak allows you to seal the meat on a very high heat without cooking the inside.
