That video is not necessarily the true time line Andy. It is edited.

They showed the process I described. Steak comes out of the broiler gets cut up and put back into the broiler before service.

They don't show what they edited out though. There is a cut between the time it comes out of the broiler and when it is cut up. That cut could be the resting period that they just did not show because it would make for very boring TV to watch a steak sit on a plate for 3 minutes.

Picture the busy Peter Luger kitchen at dinner time with a sea of steaks on plates, resting and waiting to be cut up!

This video is different from the one I saw Sunday. Not sure if that was more conclusive.

BTW, it's on again Thursday evening. (8:00 or 9:00 PM). The Peter Luger segment is first. About 15 minutes into the show you wil hqave seen what I describe.

Isn't that what you would expect to see though? It was surprising to hear that they do not rest the steaks so before seeing this process wouldn't you expect that when their steaks come off the heat they rest them?

But your conversation with the restaurant person seemed to confirm the video.

Well yes and no. If you read back in my conversation with the person there you will see I was not convinced he knew what he was talking about. He first acted like he had no idea what resting meant and then proceeded to tell me about resting. He also said they seer the meat under high heat which locks in the juices so they don't spill out when cut (which you and I both know is false), but then went on to say that the juices that come out (I thought you said you seared it so the juices didn't come out) mix with the butter and the steak cooks in that.

I do not know what role the person i spoke to plays at the restaurant. He could have been the janitor for all I know. I doubt he was a chef though because I stupidly called during lunch time.

I guess we'll never know for sure.

Also consider that they may have rushed things for TV. In actuality they may let their steaks rest, but a camera watching a steak rest for 2-3 minutes doesn't make for captivating entertainment.
