We’re going to show you how you can achieve great taste using everyone’s favorite treat: chocolate. This content was created in partnership with Food52.
There are few things as satisfying as a perfectly seared thick-cut steak with a browned, crisp crust. Also, there are few things that taste as good: That caramelized crust is where a lot of your steak’s flavor is hiding. Getting a good sear is simple if you remember just a few tips.
First, always use enough fat, and make sure to get your oil nice and hot over high heat before you drop the steak in. One thing: You’ll want to open a window as it will smoke, but isn’t that what makes cooking fun?
Watch how to get it right, and then apply the technique to every steak you make from this day forward. To gild the lily, make a quick pan sauce (we love this one made with chocolate stout) or a simple pat of butter. Your future dinners will thank you.
