Obviously once it taste burned, its burned... (yet nothing you can do anymore)
I love to cook, and I cook for years. But im always shy to "hear" the pan, because I'm afraid I will burn the food. I think my steaks are pretty good, yet maybe it can be better (of-course it can!).
I have seen lots of famous chefs showing how to make a steak, chicken, etc. They always state there is a ton of flavour on the bottom of the pan, which you extract (deglaze) by adding some form of liquid (water, stock, etc.). Got it!
When its truly black, its burned and you should not eat it. Sounds fair.
Apparently there is a thin line where it looks black, yet its not burned.
In similar fashion, when you throw stuff on the grill its even more obvious, because you can see the black stripes. Yet, im not sure if its actually burned?
So, any clues when does black becomes burned (before it happens)?
