Cooking steaks over an open flame is so last summer. Duo Bompas & Parr have taken a different approach to get meat to a safe temperature for consumption by using lava and lightning. For the lava experiment, they used molten hot liquid from a bronze furnace at 2100 degrees Fahrenheit and successfully seared steaks. Given the results, I wouldn’t be surprised to see restaurant add lava-cooking as a gimmick.
Or maybe they’ll just skip straight to the lightning method. Bompas & Parr worked at the University of Southampton’s high voltage laboratory for this experiment and created a 200,000 volt electric arc to sear beef in no time at all.
Watch the grilling experiment after the break.
