I think a good crust entails more than just browned bits. It also provides a nice textural contrast. Butter basted meat tastes like, well, butter, and tends to sog up the crust a bit. Sometimes that is very nice. Sometimes I want a harder sear.I'm method agnostic. Deliver me steak that's browned on the outside and pink on the inside and I don't give a fuck how you got there.
