I tried grilling a steak yesterday and it did not go well, unlike grilling the veggies, which came out perfectly.

I am thinking of going back to sous vide for prepping the steak, then only finishing on the grill, and I'm wondering how sacrilegious this is for grilling folks.

Some of the problem is the grill that this apartment came with has not had a proper cleaning in a *long* time. It smoked immediately, and was full of black ash, suit, grease, etc.I cleaned it as best as I could without specialized tools, and I saw a difference (blue flames vs the mess of orange and yellow flames), but I know I'll need to clean it again, and I am just not adept at the needs of a grill and I need practice.

I can't really see what's going on there as it's in Norwegian, and based on what I know, Norwegians don't take good care of their kitchen appliances.

@emacsen Ah, sorry!

They use explosives, and the result outperforms ("outenderizes"...?) the sous vide's meat in a blind test.

Even the sous vide's owner agrees.

And before it comes up, I don't think the Swedes are much better...

This famous Swedish chef can't even make Svenska Kottbullar!

@emacsen Egg in microwave, was a bit of a disappointment.

They needed an ostrich egg to get an impressive result. youtube.com/watch?v=n8BhfFg7wY

It's this kind of ingenuity that fueled the Finnish space program in the 1970s.

You've never seen that? A friend sent it to me almost two decades ago- pre Youtube :).

The original Finnish is a lot nicer (I think- I don't speak Finnish), but yeah that video is... a lot.
