  1. Searing

    Searing is a technique used in grilling, baking, braising, roasting, sautéing, etc., in which the surface of the food is cooked at high temperature so a caramelized crust forms. Similar techniques, browning and blackening, are typically used to sear all sides of a particular piece of meat, fish, poultry, etc. before finishing it in the oven. To obtain the desired brown or black crust, the meat surface must exceed 150 °C, so searing requires the meat surface be free of water, which boils at around 100 °C. Although often said to "lock in the moisture" or "seal in the juices", searing has been demonstrated to result in a greater net loss of moisture versus cooking to the same internal temperature without first searing. Nonetheless, it remains an essential technique in cooking meat for several reasons: ⁕The browning creates desirable flavors through caramelization and the Maillard reaction. ⁕The appearance of the food is usually improved with a well-browned crust. ⁕The contrast in taste and texture between the crust and the interior makes the food more interesting to the palate. Typically in grilling, the food will be seared over very high heat and then moved to a lower-temperature area of the grill to finish cooking. In braising, the seared surface acts to flavor, color and otherwise enrich the liquid in which the food is being cooked.

Examples of searing in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Oh how smoothly, how swiftly and horribly, how cruelly and thoroughly, one discovers the powers and prowess of Maya, the Supreme power of Illusions! With a simple sleight of her hand, léger de main, everything changes in a moment; electrically charged, awesome and exciting years of life shrink to moments - just to realize that all that fascinating reality had been a dream. Perhaps all that had happened previously had been a continuous sequence of beautiful images that one would admire and fall in love with, and to realize that it’s all the game of dreams, illusions and Maya. The reality also strikes, at the same moment, that everything one would still experience in the future, would see with one’s eyes and feel with one’s hands, up to the moment of one’s death — that everything is not going to be any different in substance, or any different in kind. Why would it be? It’s always all a game, all foam and all dreams. It’s Maya, the whole lovely and frightful, delicious and desperate kaleidoscope of life with its searing delights, intertwined with its searing sorrows, the amazing show that has been ongoing since the dawn of Universe.

  3. Marianne Baker:

    In all my years working for Senator Joe Biden, I never once witnessed, or heard of, or received, any reports of inappropriate conduct, period -- not from Ms. Tara Reade, not from anyone. I have absolutely no knowledge or memory of Ms. Reade's accounting of events, which would have left a searing impression on me as a woman professional, and as a manager, these clearly false allegations are in complete contradiction to both the inner workings of our Senate office and to the man I know and worked so closely with for almost two decades.

  4. The State Department spokesman:

    They are searing, they are painful, they are difficult to see, they are difficult to watch, we share a common humanity with these Afghans whose desperation, whose fear, whose concern... they wear it on their faces.

  5. Uma Thurman:

    The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me, i felt this searing pain and thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m never going to walk again,’.
