Saw one of my favorite YouTube chefs do a video in which they coated a steak with mayo before cooking it. I originally thought it was going to be a prank video but to my surprise it was real and was shocked that they actually recommended doing it at home. I finally caved in and gave it a try and I also highly recommend it, the sear adds like a fluffiness to the steak that is difficult to describe but the taste is very pleasant.

I figured this was a pretty odd way to get a good sear on a steak and was wondering if any one else has given this a try?

Cant believe I’ll be doing this cooking method again sometime soon

Mayo is oil and eggs. I use mayo to coat fish and shrimp before breading it, its very neutral and you can season with spices, hot sauce or worcestershire,,never tried steak. I'll have to do a test run if it ever quits snowing. 😬

A little off topic, but along the same line. I saw a video online talking about cooking eggs with heavy cream. The idea is the buttermilk and liquid evaporate and steam the eggs and the butter solids brown and add flavor. I've been making my eggs like this sunny side up cooked med in cream for 3 weeks now and they are fantastic and buttery.

Whoops they go on to mention anytime you want to cook in butter that cream is a better option. I've browned roasted sweet potatos in cream. And plan to do more veggies using this method.
