Hell’s Kitchen Review: Get Your Steaks Ready
The show started off with Kimmie showing off that she has another passion besides cooking: rapping. The night before she was bored so she made a rap about the remaining chefs. All that needs to be said is Kimmie needs to keep her day job.
When the chefs got downstairs for the day’s work, there was a giant gold sheet covering something. Underneath it was a huge slot machine. Ramsey decided that since they are going to be head chefs at a steak house in Las Vegas, they would be cooking steaks and their cuts and ingredients would be chosen by a slot machine.
First, the Red Team needed to choose who would have to sit out since this was a head to head competition. Kimmie decided to sit out after everyone else decided they were too good to sit out.
The ingredients chosen by the slot machine range from the typical (flat iron steak, potatoes, mushrooms, spinach and blue cheese) to the bizarre (hanger steak, yam, eggplant, asparagus and crab?
One interesting thing is that Tiffany decided to fill her steak (fillet). A brave move that won a point for the Red. Christina and Royce were again against each other and Christina won again. Barbie and Brian’s NY tied which left the tiebreaker to Clemenza and Robyn with their rib eye. Clemenza got the point due to Robyn’s rib eye being overcooked and the rub being “disgusting. It’s wet, it’s soggy and it’s overcooked.”
Would Kimmie’s dish have won the challenge? Yes, it would have.
While the Blue Team enjoyed shopping at Sur la Table and eating at Comme Ca, the Red Team had to unload a truck that, according to Ramsey, contained a “side of beef” and cut it into portions because tonight was steak night at Hell’s Kitchen. That was no side of beef; that was half a cow.
Ramsey tells the chefs that there will also be a kids menu that night and Justin’s filet mignon is on the menu as well. The episode ends with Kimmie spilling hot grease all over her hand and, according to the medic, might not return to the kitchen.
The drama on the Red Team is getting out of hand. They may finish dinner service, but their constant bickering is getting old and is starting to sound like a bunch of high school girls arguing over boyfriends, especially with Robyn accusing Barbie of stealing a knife and the whole Kimmie and Robyn feud. It is worrisome as to the condition of Kimmie’s hand. We’ll just have to find out next time what happens.
