Oil the meat, or the pan...??

Following on from last nights "Food tube" launch, Gennaro oils the pan and adds the chicken breast, now when I'm cooking (frying) meat I start with a dry pan, and add seasoned, oiled meat...unless we are talking mince or small medallians etc.

Which do you do boys and girls ??

It depends on what I am cooking, but I have done both.  Usually when I cook a steak I oil the meat not the pan.  If I'm cooking it with something else, like veg I oil the pan.

For steaks, I brush them with oil but never season them until they're almost cooked.
I've cooked oxtail stew today and brown the pieces in a little oil first to seal in the juices.
Pot roast brisket gets well and truly sealed in about a tsp of oil before turning the heat down to minimum.  Don't season that either until well on the way.

Right, I'm cooking chicken breast tonight (On the bone) and I'm oiling the breast...I might attempt one of my infamous videos that go horribly wrong..... crossed

I usually season and oil my meat first.  if i'm doing something like a quick fry or browning i will add a little oil to the pan.

Usually the meat (always if bbqing-otherwise clouds of smoke and the oil is more likely to start fires).

It's usually the pan for me! Personal preference!

We oil the meat if it's going on the BBQ.

I had a horrible mess the other week with burgers cooked on the griddle pan in the kitchen.  I oiled the burgers but somehow they stuck to all the ridges and made a right mess - any tips for me?  I did wait until they were properly cooked before I flipped them, once only.

I've had that happen, Grub:/. Use a normal pan now for such things. Sorry not to have been of much help.
