F&W Classic in Aspen 2015: Don't Use Olive Oil When Grilling Steaks

Read the transcript of this video
[SOUND] How many use olive oil on steaks? Y'all are lying, there's a lot more people that use olive oil. [LAUGH] They're like ****, he said not to use it. I'm not raising my hand. [LAUGH] I'm smarter than half of all these people already. You do not wanna use olive oil, especially really good olive oil. It's one of those few cases where you go in the store and you buy the most expensive **** there is. You don't want to put that on meats. Especially on something very, very hot. So olive oil burns at about 300, 310 degrees. Peanut oil, canola oil, grapeseed oil, all 500, okay? So think about it. Most grills get to to about 500 degrees. [INAUDIBLE] I use peanut oil solely for the flavor over rapeseed oil or canola oil. To me, it has the best flavor, period, especially when you're grilling, or searing very, very hot. So, we're gonna put a little bit of peanut oil on each one of these and rub it in, okay? You can use a pastry brush if you want to, whatever. Rub the oil in. Now remember, we're cooking on a dry surface And what I mean by dry is, I've got three cast iron pans here. So, if we were to put it into a cast iron pan, like the one your grandma had, you would add oil to the pan, season the meat. Because we're going in dry on a grill pan or just like we were simulating grilling. We're going to oil the meat first. You've got to have the fat. Regardless you've got to have the fat. [BLANK_AUDIO]
