Chrissy Teigen Surprises TikToker Michelle Kaplin & Makes Butter-Basted Steak

Watch TikToker @MichKapCooks make garlicky, brown butter–basted steak for me in NYC!

When I heard that TikToker Michelle Kaplin (aka @michkapcooks) was cooking her way through the Cravings cookbooks à la Julie & Julia, I knew that I had to meet her! And so here we are in my NYC apartment cooking a new Cravings recipe: Garlicky, Brown Butter-Basted Steak. This technique of basting beef with brown butter, garlic, and rosemary will caramelize the crust and to keep the juices locked inside. It will give you steakhouse-worthy, flavorful meat every time, perfectly seared in our nonstick cast iron enamel skillet! I promise you'll never want to cook steak another way again.

Cast Iron is the secret to restaurant-quality textures: think crispy fried eggs, perfectly seared steak, and crusty cornbread. It can cook almost anything and will last a lifetime. Naturally nonstick for no-fuss cleanup Use on the stovetop, in the oven, or even over a campfire Unlike most cast iron, seasoning (the process of baking oil into the pan) is not required

This richly colored knife block is the low-profile, high-quality answer to storing every knife you need in the kitchen. Chrissy designed this 8-piece set based on the knives she and John use every day, so the ashwood block is filled with exactly what you need (including a cleaver!), and nothing you don't. Each stainless steel blade is taper ground to stay sharp. The ashwood handles feature a full-tang (meaning the metal runs through the handle) for easy control—and a damn good dice.
