Flat iron steak, Dana versus Patrick. Dana: grilled steak with sautéed spinach, cabernet reduction with wild mushrooms. Ramsay says it looks a mess and drains off the sauce. He tastes it, calls it ragged and dry, adds that it's her worst-performing dish so far. Patrick's entry is seared steak with roasted wild mushroom and red potato hash. Ramsay makes him taste how salty it is, pointing out the blue cheese would naturally salt things anyway. No points awarded, and Ramsay calls both their dishes ill-conceived. Patrick tells us his wife is always telling him that he salts too much, so he's sure he's going to hear about this one.
Bryan versus Barbie. Barbie's grilled surf and turf, celery root mash, roasted cauliflower and heirloom tomato salad. Ramsay says the steak and shrimp are delicious. Brian's got a New York steak tagliata, rosemary Dijon-crusted, celery root frites. Tomato and shrimp salad. Ramsay says it all works brilliantly, and says it's tough call. Then he gives a point to both teams.
In a shocker, the last round will be a tiebreaker: Robyn versus Clemenza, the battle of the ribeyes. Clemenza's pan-seared steak with glazed charred corn relish and fried parsnips. Ramsay says the steak is slightly undercooked. Gasps as we head to commercial.
After, though, Ramsay says it's delicious, just needs another two minutes. As for Robyn, she's got a coffee and flour encrusted ribeye and frittata. She's feeling the pressure of being up there instead of Kimmie, so no one's going to like what's coming, except people who don't like Robyn* (*I don't like Robyn).: Ramsay says it's seasoned perfectly but overcooked, and the rub is disgusting. "Dreadful!" says Ramsay, awarding a point to Blue.
Now, naturally, Ramsay wants to taste Kimmie's dish. "It is delicious," he says. Robyn insinuates that he's just saying that, and I tend to agree that Kimmie could have served up shit on a plate and Ramsay is going to sow tension and infighting by praising it over Robyn's entry. Then he makes everyone else come up and try it. He tells them they made a bad choice, because that would have given Clemenza a run for his money.
Blue's prize: a day of knife shopping plus dinner at Comme Ça.
As for Red, they're going to unload the side of beef arriving for tomorrow's Steak Night and get it prepped. Kimmie, meanwhile, has heard that her dish would have given Clemenza's a run for its money and taken it to mean her dish would have BEATEN Clemenza's, which isn't exactly what Ramsay said. But that's why she's extra grumpy at having to haul in a frozen half a cow. Dana plays the "the boys should be doing this because we're women and can't lift" card, and then expresses concern for Kiimmie's heavy breathing whilst they carry in the carcass.
