Searing a steak is a delicate process and has various methods to choose from. To see which ways are best, Tested’s Adam Savage teamed up with Serious Eats’ J Kenji López-Alt to test a variety of methods.
There are a lot of things that go into searing a steak, including drying it out first, temperature and how you treat the steak to start. As far as searing methods go, Adam Savage and J. Kenji López-Alt test out a variety of outdoor methods, including a searzall, grilling on the grill, a chimney and a homemade aluminium forge.
Their favourite as far as taste goes? The chimney, but the other methods have benefits as well. If you’re thinking about trying some new searing methods for your weekend grilling, the video above’s well worth a watch.
