Why Sear Then Bake?

Recommended Posts

While there are recipes in the whole30 books and on the whole30 site, you never have to follow them. All whole30 really cares about is the ingredients you're eating, you can cook them any way you want to.

I haven't looked closely at every single recipe put out by whole30, but I've seen ones that don't sear first, so I assume that the ones that do either want the color from searing for appearance, or it's a way to ensure more even cooking or a way to make part of the cooking more hands off.

Practically every cooking show I've ever watched does a hard sear to make the outside yummy and then finish in the oven so it cooks without obliterating the outside. 

Alternately, you could poach via sous vide and then sear.
