A Perfectly Seared Steak is a Perfectly Juicy One: MYTH

McKeller grew up in a family that liked their steaks well-done and so they would sear the steaks before grilling or roasting them to lock in the juices. After working in a steakhouse at the start of her career, she learned that this was wrong. Searing a steak locks in the flavor, not the juices. While she encourages you to rub your steak with spices and to give it a quick sear so you get a rich and flavorful steak, if you want to keep the juices, let it rest. Just a mere five minutes will help you achieve a tender and juicy piece of meat.
