Want a wicked sear? Grab the mayonnaise!

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.

Learn more below and unlock the secrets to some seriously superb sears. Bonus tip? Red meat not your thing? This trick also works great on pork, chicken, fish, etc!
