You pull that perfectly juicy steak from the water bath. All that’s left between you and heaven is a quick sear to crisp up the crust. We’ve heard of all the common methods: canola oil, butter, etc. What if we told you there’s a better way? Mayonnaise. Yes. When mayo is suggested as an option, people usually stop listening.
There are good reasons this popular sandwich spread produces a superior sear. Strip mayo down to its core and it’s essentially two things: oil and eggs. Both of these are commonly used in culinary applications for browning. Think egg wash on bread for a golden crust when baking, oil in a hot pan for the way you USED to sear. So what happens when they get used together? Magic. Maillard reaction magic.
