  • TikTok home cook Liam Donafee (@liamslunchbox) coated filet mignon steak in Fruity Pebbles cereal.
  • Gordon Ramsay mocked the TikToker's cooking in one of his #RamsayReacts videos.
  • Donafee floured the meat, made a cereal crust, and air-fried it.

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is famous for his love of meat - he recently roasted a controversial vegan TikToker who asked him to stop eating animal products. And he also famously takes pride in his meat-cooking skills, like his iconic beef wellington (which he recently adapted for vegan diners) featuring filet mignon.

The "MasterChef" host has also made a name for himself as a TikTok star with his popular #RamsayReacts videos, where he roasts home cooks who are showing off their wildest creations hoping to get his attention. He previously told Insider that he considers himself the unofficial "referee" and judge of all things cooking on the platform.

Back in September, Ramsay roasted Liam Donafee (@liamslunchbox on TikTok) for his Fruity Pebble-crusted mozzarella sticks. Recently, Donafee tried to "redeem" himself by coating Ramsay's prized cut of beef with the same cereal.

When Donafee shared his colorful creation, Ramsay, of course, had something to say about it. At the time of writing, the video below had 7 million views.

"Okay, Gordon Ramsay, I see you, I see you roasting me for my Fruity Pebble mozzarella sticks," Donafee said in the video. "But try and roast this! Today we're redeeming ourselves. We're making Fruity Pebble filet mignon steak."


The first step in his cooking process is dipping the steak in an egg wash and then coating it with flour. When Ramsay saw what was happening he was less than pleased and pulled out a famous, dessert-inspired insult from his arsenal: "What are you doing flouring a filet mignon, you doughnut?"

Donafee's recipe instructs viewers to cook their steak in an air fryer.

"No. No, no, no! Come on, dude," he said as he watched Donafee place the steak into the appliance. "I wanna kick your butt!"


When it was time to remove the meat, Ramsay said the cook should take it out and "throw it in the trash" before pointing out that the meat was overcooked for his ideal medium-rare (which creates an intense pink center).

Then, when Ramsay saw Donafee putting his finishing touch of marshmallow sauce on the steak, the celebrity chef gagged and pretended to throw up.

Suffice it to say, this particular recipe will likely not end up on one of the Gordon Ramsay Steak menus.


Donafee didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
