Here's judge Gail Simmons's explanation of why that lamb didn't get Jasinski sent home:
I thought the lamb was a little undercooked. I didn't have a problem with it personally, but I know that's a very subjective question. In general, I do think it was undercooked for the majority of people there and for how lamb really should be. It was just a little too pink in the center, almost blue. I think that was daunting for a lot of people. I also wish it had been more seared on the outside, that she would have developed a little more crust or char, which would have given it more flavor and also helped the texture. There's a lot of fat on the outside of a lamb chop like that. If you don't render it down, it becomes chewy and fatty to eat.The honored teacher also had a very touching reaction to Jasinski's dish.
But the grains and fennel she paired with it were absolutely outrageous! I loved that she started with the idea of porridge and, just like Mama Bear's, it was just right
And so instead, David Burke was sent home, and Jaskinski moved into the finals against Bryan Voltaggio and Douglas Keane. That episode will air at 8 p.m. Wednesday, September 25 on Bravo.
Best place to watch? Euclid Hall, where all the TVs in the place will be tuned to that channel.
