I do not like the crust that forms on the surface of meat when frying, baking and grilling. It seems to me this is caused by oil being on the surface of the meat. In the case of baking and grilling I imagine oil comes out of the meat, sits on the surface and fries the surface temporarily hence there is some frying going on here.
1. Would I be correct in thinking this is the cause of the the crusty exterior, if not what causes it?
- In all cases how can I avoid the crust from forming? I have bought grilled chops from the shop and they did not have a crusty surface so there must be some way to avoid it? At the moment I'm just cutting the surface off and eating the interior.
