The perfect steak only takes a minute, according to Gordon Ramsay.

In a video released by the hot-tempered chef and TV personality himself, Ramsay shows you how to cook the “perfect steak” served in a flambé sauce. The video was released in celebration of the Fourth of July, but a good steak is perfect any time of the year.

Yes, to achieve perfection, one must set the world on fire. Or, at least set their cooking range on fire.

If you’re intimidated, don’t worry. Ramsay’s tutorial might come at you hot and fast, but you can take your time to prep. All in all, a nice flambé doesn’t look too hard, but it’s always important to remember safety first.


Ramsay’s steak and sauce includes rosemary, thyme, mushrooms, butter, cream, garlic, and shallots. Plus, a little cognac to get the blaze.

If you’re going to trust anyone to cook something perfectly, it has to be Gordon Ramsay.
