A professional chef claims you can cook a 'restaurant quality' steak in a toaster.
As any meat-eater can tell you, there is no greater taste than a steak done well - which isn't well done, it's rare or medium rare.
People can find it challenging to get it just right, but Craig Harker reckons you can just bung one in the toaster and get a fantastic result.
The owner of The George Pub and Grill in Stockton-on-Tees, Durham, had seen the method used in a viral video and decided to buy a toaster especially to try it himself - and he was stunned by the results.
The 33-year-old said: "I didn't expect for it to work at all. You always see these videos floating about online but I was shocked that it came out restaurant quality.
"I had seen it online and thought there is no way you can cook a steak in the toaster so I had to try it out for myself, because I know how to cook a good steak.
"I tested it out first with a rump steak to get the settings right; I seasoned it as I normally would because if it's seasoned well, you might still get a good steak.
"I played around with the settings on the side and the first one popped up too rare so I put it down for a second time but then we overcooked it."
He continued: "It was trial and error but when we put the third steak down, it came out medium rare and was pink in the middle but well done on the outside.
"It tasted really nice and was red hot; if someone doesn't know how to cook a good steak just whack it in the toaster.
"I won't be serving it to anyone but it's fun to show people."
I suppose there is the added benefit that your toast will probably taste nice and meaty for a good while afterwards as well.
LADbible and Craig absolutely do not endorse this method though, and advise that you do not try it at home, 'cause you know, could be a bit fire hazardy, couldn't it?
Just get a pan, bit of butter and garlic, plenty of salt and pepper, high heat, few minutes on each side - bosh. Leave the toaster out of it.
