Next time I order a baked potato in a restaurant and I'm looking at a potato wrapped in foil on my plate, I will send it back then
I would like to see the look on the server's face when I tell them I did not order it steamed
I know what you're saying though.
But why wouldn't it be considered boiled in butter, since I'll bet the butter is bubbling beneath the foil? When I think steamed I think something that heats a medium that creates steam that surrounds, not something immersed in the medium already.
And all this is what the original poster was getting at.... Funny how the name of food and the cooking methods can vary when basically you are cooking the stuff the same way.... roast prime rib, baked ham
