I had the brilliant idea tonight to do my baked steak recipe in the egg (sort of a best of both worlds thing, get the smoke flavor, cast iron searing, and the garlic and mushrooms cooked in steak drippings with vermouth in the cast iron). Unfortunately, when I tossed the garlic into the pan, one bounced out. I tried grabbing it with tongs, but it fell through into the hot lump.
I ended up with burnt garlic flavored steak :(
Other than that, it turned out great. I'm doing a clean burnout now to hopefully get rid of any residual burnt garlic. I assume a long hot fire will eliminate the unwanted garlic flavor.
