This is one of the classic steakhouse sauces. It’s pretty much good on any meat or poultry. It’s excellent with grilled meats, but where you can get a little extra flavor is by reverse searing a steak in a cast iron pan. The fond or caramelized meat drippings will add body and so much flavor to your sauce.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a food more universally adored than bacon. It’s such a staple in American cuisine--and American culture in general--that it’s difficult to imagine anything better. As it turns out, though, there is a lesser-known meat treat that’s proving a worthy challenger. We asked some of our MEATER fans whether they preferred classic bacon or pork belly burnt ends, and the latter proved to be the pinnacle of pork dishes.
