TIP OF THE DAY: Juicy Steaks

Contrary to popular belief, says Chef Louis Eguaras, searing a steak at a high temperature does not lock in natural juices.

The juiciness comes from cooking meat quickly at a high temperature, as opposed to grilling or sautéing, which cooks the meat for a longer time at a lower temperature.

Searing creates a crisp and flavorful crust by caramelizing the natural sugars an amino acids in the beef (known as a Maillard Reaction). The ideal temperature for caramelizing is 350°F to 500°F.

Be careful not to exceed 500°F when cooking. Very high temperatures can char the beef, producing a burned flavor as well as carcinogens.
