  • (upbeat music)

  • - What it do, everybody?

  • My name is Ross Pineda, chef and owner of FYEH Kitchen,

  • and today, we're here to try four celebrity steak recipes.

  • On today's lineup, we have Chrissy Teigen,

  • Ayesha Curry, Antoni Porowski,

  • and the man, the myth and the idiot sandwich, Gordon Ramsay.

  • I measured out all the ingredients as each recipe stated,

  • and I brought three people on stakeouts

  • to see which one is their favorite steak.

  • So which celebrity makes the best steak?

  • Stay tuned and find out.

  • So, first off we'be got Chrissy Teigen.

  • We're going to start off by heavily seasoning our steak

  • with salt and pepper, heavy emphasis on the pepper

  • 'cause we're making steak au poivre.

  • In a pan, we're gonna throw in some olive oil and butter

  • and heat it up.

  • We're going to saute our sliced button mushrooms

  • and season it with salt and pepper.

  • Once they get a little bit of color,

  • we're gonna throw in some chicken stock and butter

  • and reduce that.

  • Once it's reduced, we're gonna add some more butter,

  • season it with soy sauce,

  • and then finish it off with some heavy cream.

  • Reduce that until it gets nice and thick,

  • thicc with two Cs.

  • In a cast-iron pan, we're gonna hard-sear our steak.

  • Throw in some butter, garlic, thyme.

  • We're gonna baste that.

  • Once the steak is done, we're gonna slice it up,

  • achieve a nice little medium-rare,

  • plate it up, and top it off with mushroom gravy.

  • There you have it,

  • Chrissy Teigen's steak au poivre steak with mushroom gravy.

  • - Looking pretty good.

  • - Okay. I definitely like what I'm seeing here.

  • - This looks yummy.

  • - We've got a nice... looks like a peppered crust.

  • - I like the mushrooms on top.

  • Big fan.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Mmm.

  • - Oh, that's so good.

  • - This very good.

  • - I like the soft feel when I bite down into it.

  • - It's perfectly textured.

  • I mean, it's so soft.

  • - The mushrooms have great flavor.

  • It's nice and saucy, but not too much.

  • - The peppered crust is a really, really nice touch.

  • It's got a nice crispiness on the top.

  • - I feel like it's a little homemade.

  • It definitely tastes good, though.

  • - I think you would find a steak like this,

  • you know, in a really nice restaurant.

  • - I would order this.

  • - [Ross] So next up. We have Ayesha Curry's filet mignon.

  • We're gonna start off by seasoning our steak

  • with salt and pepper.

  • We're gonna have our mise en place.

  • We're going to have some rosemary and garlic.

  • In a cast-iron pan, we're gonna sear it pretty hard

  • until we get nice color on both sides.

  • We're gonna throw in our butter and rosemary.

  • We're going to baste that really quickly,

  • and then we're gonna finish it off in the oven

  • at 475 degrees until just medium rare.

  • Once it comes out the oven,

  • we're gonna slice it up and plate it.

  • And there you have it,

  • Ayesha Curry's oven-baked filet mignon.

  • - I have a feeling this is gonna be really delicious,

  • and I'm really excited to eat it.

  • - This smells really good.

  • I can really smell the meat.

  • - I do like the color.

  • It does feel a little soft.

  • - This one definitely looks a little more plain

  • than the last one that I ate, but looks can be deceiving.

  • - There's nothing wrong with it.

  • It's plain.

  • - It's a little bland.

  • Not feeling this one, guys.

  • Not feeling this one.

  • - Super tender. Perfect texture.

  • It's a little tougher than the last one, I will say that,

  • but I kind of like it.

  • - It's cooked really well.

  • I have no complaints.

  • - Overall, bland.

  • - [Ross] So here we have Antoni Porowski's steak recipe.

  • We're gonna start off by making shallot vinaigrette

  • by suddenly slicing some shallots, throwing it in a bowl,

  • and mixing it up with the juice of one lime,

  • and season with a little bit of salt and pepper.

  • So Antoni marinates the steak with some crushed garlic

  • and some thinly sliced ginger.

  • In a bowl, we're gonna put the ginger and garlic

  • and mix it with olive oil

  • and thoroughly marinate the hanger steak

  • for about a half hour.

  • While that's marinating, we're gonna chop up our herbs

  • and our jalapeno for garnish.

  • We're going to chiffonade parsley, basil, and mint

  • and throw it in a bowl,

  • along with some thinly sliced jalapenos.

  • Once the steak has been done marinating,

  • we're gonna wipe off as much of the marinade as possible,

  • season it with salt and pepper,

  • and give that a nice hard sear.

  • He throws in two halves of a lime in the pan

  • for a little extra flavor.

  • Once the hanger steak is cooked, we're gonna let it rest,

  • and we're gonna slice it up and plate.

  • On the plate, he tops it off with the shallot vinaigrette,

  • the herbs, jalapenos,

  • and the juice of the two roasted limes.

  • And there you have it, Antoni Porowski's hanger steak.

  • - This one looks delicious.

  • It looks like maybe a carne asada,

  • something you would get at a taqueria.

  • - This is very yummy.

  • - It has a little kick. Okay.

  • - It just tastes super light and fresh.

  • - It's truly delicious.

  • It's cooked perfectly.

  • - Definitely my kind of cut.

  • I love rare, and I love medium rare,

  • but I'm not digging the flavor.

  • - This is something I would expect to probably be served

  • at a restaurant, and it's got solid ingredients,

  • and it looks really good.

  • - I'm married to this steak,

  • and I would eat this every single day

  • if I didn't already have high cholesterol.

  • - [Ross] And the recipe we've all been waiting for,

  • Gordon Ramsay.

  • He's gonna start off by seasoning his steak evenly

  • with salt and pepper.

  • We're gonna heat up some olive oil in a cast-iron pan.

  • We're gonna give that steak a nice sear,

  • and we're gonna crush up some garlic,

  • throw in some butter, and baste it with some thyme.

  • Just look at that. Magic.

  • Once the steak has achieved a nice rare,

  • we're gonna slice it up and plate it.

  • And as simple as that, Gordon Ramsay's steak.

  • - Okay, okay. I'm loving the smell.

  • I love the fat pieces.

  • - This also looks plain,

  • but it looks like a good piece of meat,

  • and I could see the seasoning on it, so it looks yummy.

  • - This one is definitely on the rare side.

  • I'm a little nervous here, but I'm gonna go for it anyway.

  • - I love the mixture of fat versus actual meat pieces.

  • - It's super soft.

  • I wish there was a bit more of punch of flavor,

  • but it's really good.

  • - This one has an amazing texture.

  • If you're a steak person,

  • you're probably really gonna like this.

  • For me, I like my steak with a little more pizazz.

  • Give me some salt. Give me some pepper.

  • I don't know.

  • It's just a little plain.

  • - It is a little dry.

  • I wish it was juicy.

  • But the flavor's there.

  • I'm digging that.

  • - I feel like I would be served this cut at a restaurant.

  • I do wish it had a little bit more flavor.

  • - [Ross] So which celebrity has the best steak?

  • Let's find out.
