                  I love how cooks always say "funky" when what they really mean is, "slightly rotten." People don't like to admit we like the taste of stuff that's slightly gone off.

                        This is good, but use fresh thyme instead of rosemary. It's better.

                                  I normally sous vide steaks but when I pan fry them I use avocado oil for it's higher smoke point.

                                      Honestly I could just keep listening to Carla's instructions and chatter while (she's) cooking. Too pleasant and nice and you just wanna listen to what she has to say!

                                        Perhaps she mis spoke, but you dont rest a steak to "get the juices flowing". Its the opposite. You rest a steak so the juices start the process of solidifying and they stay in the steak instead of running all over the cutting board or the plate. You want them in your mouth.

                                            7:40 I cooked professionally for a decade, and this feeling still happens every time I cook a steak. Mounting dread and horror that you might have somehow cooked it to well done leather, despite the fact that you did it the same way as the thousands of other steaks you've successfully cooked to medium rare.
