TIPS FROM THE CHEF: CONTROL IS THE KEY
“Control is the key to a successful steak and sauce,” according to Chef Jim Coleman, host of Healthy Flavors® and Flavors of America®, which air on the Comcast Network. This month in his new Culinary Tips video, Chef Coleman utilizes the Dacor SimmerSear™ Burners on the Epicure® Dual-Fuel Range to demonstrate how to sear a perfect New York strip steak and simmer a savory Béarnaise sauce.
Available on every Epicure Range and Epicure and Preference® Gas Cooktops, the SimmerSear Burners deliver 800 BTUs for a super-specific simmer and 18,000 BTUs for a perfect sear. Ideal for the passionate home chef who wants to master his or her craft, Chef Coleman explains how the SimmerSear Burners provide the precision that allows him to sear in his steak’s flavor and the control necessary to simmer his Béarnaise sauce without cooking the eggs or scorching the butter.
Whether the recipe requires an ultra-low heat to melt butter or chocolate, or a fast-rolling boil to cook pasta, each burner is designed to accommodate your culinary needs. This means you can serve up restaurant quality cuisine effortlessly and impress your guests at your next dinner party.
