Andy, nothing is too good for you and my other DC chef friends! You folks are the best bunch of cooking experts I've ever met! And friendly too!


I have an additional thought on multiply turning steaks. AFAIK when you heat meat the meat tenses up and drives juices out of the meat cells (muscle tissue cells) and into the spaces between. Then as the meat cools down (rests) the fluids are reabsorbed back into the cells. If you keep repeating this process by turning the steak over and over I surmise that the cells toughen up and are less able to reabsorb the juices, so I speculate that the end result of multiple turns is a dry, tough steak.

For me it all depends on how I am cooking my steak. If I want a nice sear on it, I flip 3 times. Twice in the pan, once in the oven. This is really just to keep my 600 degree iron skillet from burning the outside of the meat. If I am cooking on a grill I just flip once.

Burgers, brauts, etc are a whole other thing for me.

i would imagine they wilt quickly that way, fee...

back on topic: if i'm used to the cooking device, such as my broiler or gas grill, i only flip once since i'm used to when it needs to be done. but if i'm cooking on an unfamiliar device or over/in something that can be variable such as the coals of a campfire, i'll flip 3 times or more if needed. i know by doing the finger poke method to test doneness.

I learned the finger poke method well over 20 years ago and it has never failed me.

Sometimes I miss those uncomplicated jobs...
