If you ever drop your steak into a river of molten lava, let it go, because man, it's gone.

Cooking over an incredibly hot heat source would actually be good for that - it allows for a nice sear and caramelization on the outside very quickly so that the inside doesn't cook as much.

I like to use a cast iron grill with an adjustable fuel shelf - I load it up with charcoal and mesquite wood (for extra heat and flavor) then crank the shelf up right next to the grate for the initial sear, then crank it back down to reduce the cooking temp and let the middle come up to the doneness I want.

I usually go for rare/medium-rare, but if you like your steaks bleu you could do it just as well that way.

No cooked steak is as good as fresh sashimi. It's just a losing proposition to heat up meat.

That said, I do like to burn things and I've always wanted to melt rocks. Never had the money for enough firewood, though.
 
2014-07-31 03:30:28 AM  
And yes, you CAN melt rocks with a wood fire. It just takes a lot of skill, ventilation, and ingenuity. Oh, and a metric shiat ton of wood.

Don't worry, guys, it probably was some rump cut that he had been boiling for a week, being all British and such. So no actual tasty steaks were harmed in this experiment.

Where do you love that wood is so expensive? I regularly pick up bundles of mesquite and hickory for a few bucks each. And I'm talking bundles of logs.

Caramelization? Nope. Not a bit. Wrong. Meat doesn't caramelize. You're thinking of the Maillard Reaction.

Abacus9: Uncooked meat is disgusting, and can kill you.


Meh. Everything can kill you.

Uncooked beef can be quite tasty. Uncooked horse is tasty. Uncooked or barely cooked ostrich is outstanding. Uncooked tuna, salmon, and many other fish are the best way to have them (cooking salmon ought to be a criminal offense :p ). 

Now, pork, chicken, and other such meats? Yeah, I find them pretty nasty when raw. But red meats and fish? Most can be quite good when raw, and quite safe when handled correctly and given a healthy animal as the source.

Abacus9: Uncooked meat is disgusting absolutely delicious, and can kill you.


If you've never had raw horse sashimi, you don't know what you're talking about. Done right and marbled, it is better that the best steak.

And let's not even get into Kobe beef. That's a whole 'nother level of awesome I can't even afford.

Ok, that just barely beats the system some friends and I developed to cook with a 1sq. meter Fresnel lens and a series of mirrors and prisms.

When professional chefs, engineers, and physicists get hungry, strange and wonderful things can happen.

robohobo: Where do you love that wood is so expensive?


It's the return on investment. I'm thinking to melt a rock to another rock you'll need about three or four pickup trucks full of firewood which would then need to be split into easily burned sticks and some kind of active ventilation system to really stoke those flames up for a long time. Hotter and longer than a kiln. A real PITA just to get burnt rocks at the end.

If you really just wan to melt rocks, you can use a fresnel lens from a science shop and a wooden frame. Less money, less effort, a lot less time. 10-25 seconds on a sunny day and you've got lava.

Just remember never hit your food with direct sunlight. Use the fresnel to heat a cast iron block or pan and then use the heat of the pan to cook with. There's vidyas on youtube.

Is there anything done in the preparation to make it less risky to eat, or do you just have to keep eating raw stuff still your stomach can handle it?

No idea. But Japan eats tons of raw shiat. America eats none.

Half is probably American cowardice. Seriously, way too cautious as a rule, and not just at meal time.

Half is fark it. I'm an animal, animals eat raw meat, QED.

Not that I don't like cooked meats, or I inject trichonosis worms and blood flukes into my meals to tempt fate, but the human body ain't nearly as fragile as people treat it.

Yes, technically correct, however caramelization is a commonly used term to describe the browning of meat due to the Maillard reaction.

I'm going to have to go with story generally being bullshiat.

I'm not saying he didn't do this, I'm saying that the "best steak ever" part is bullshiat.

There's really not enough information in the story.  Just the usual Daily Fail thing of writing putting up some bullet points, then writing a "story" where every sentence is a reworded bullet point, and every picture caption is a reworded sentence.

What was the source media?  Most things in a glowing liquid state at 2700, or 2100 degrees, depending on which part of the article, would be throwing off very unsavory fumes.  You would need a very purse source media, and one that doesn't gasify at those temperatures.

It's possible that molten salt might work.  It's pure, boils at just over 2500, so if we believe the 2100 degree number, there would still be some gasification, which may in retrospect taste pretty good.

I really hope you're trolling and not this ignorant. Searing a steak in a very hot skillet works beautifully and is a great method for indoor cooking.

abhorrent1: Anyone that cooks a steak in a pan should be punched in the dick


Meh, it can be done. Depends on your definition of "steak" though. Good steaks are pretty difficult to cook in a pan well, even if you use cast-iron and the broiler. Crap steaks, cut thin and quickly fried too hot in too much oil, then dried in a 200 degree oven, can be cut up and put on alfredo or a nice salad and are fairly tasty. You can even make extra and eat them cold tomorrow on white bread with miracle whip--and if you really want to commit to the zen of hillbilly, butter.

Sure, if you put it in the oven after you sear it.  Simply frying it in a pan is pants on head retarded.

Using lava to cook with is great for making stacks of steaks or chicken. Also good for making a lot of glass or cooking cobblestone into stone.
