$500 vs $16 Steak Dinner: Pro Chef & Home Cook Swap Ingredients | Epicurious

  • Expert chef Frank and home cook Lorenzo are swapping their recipes and ingredients, just for your viewing pleasure. We gave Lorenzo $500 worth of ingredients and Frank's notebook to make the best steak dinner he could (with a quick assist from food scientist Rose!) On the other side, Frank received $16 worth of goods and tried to improvise his way up to gourmet. Who achieved the most impressive results under these mixed up circumstances?

    pro or not shows there is still room to grow! for example pulling the flavor out of ginger you should cut it as thin as possible, these where thick chunks!!! even cut thin the ginger holds flavor even after an hour or two, this was a waist, knowing more about your components your working with can actually go further then technique, if you don't know the food properly then how can you choose the right process to utilize it to the fullest!??

    No offense to Frank, but that peeling was really dangerous. He’s peeling towards the body, and his thumb is close to where the knife is slicing.

    Frank is a legend, humble guy and open for new things.
    No backhanded compliments to Lorenzo and even told him, the idea of using coke in a sauce surprised him positively, which he will use from that point on.
    The two really shine together 💯
