Emily is the best chef in this show. Anyone can cook a wonderful meal with all those high-end ingredients. Try doing it with a flank steak!

i feel like the level 3 chef's abilities were wasted. it seemed like it was planned so she just did a pretty standard sous vide cook. you could tell she knows exactly what she's doing but it felt like she was being limited

tbh I can make a steak as good as the Professional Chef because she uses the sous vide method. I'd have more trouble making Emily's steak than the pro's, lol

Maybe a blue cheese crust would be ok sometimes. Most of the time all you need is salt and pepper. I would not eat any of these sauces on steak

jera9876 27 days ago
So level 1 takes a flank steak, which really needs a marinade to impart flavor and tenderize since it's so lean and tough, and just puts seasoning on it, and level 3 takes a BONE IN DRY AGED RIBEYE and puts all that garbage on it when it just needs salt and pepper??? I hate 2020
