Anyone familiar with this cooking method?

Hey guys, I usually post in the gun sub-forum more often than I am in the food forum but there's a question I'm looking for a little help on. This italian gun instructor puts on a dinner for his friends, and they cook the beef in a way I can't seem to find more on.

Basically, you can skip to 3:45. The first few minutes are just prep and him searing the beef. What i'm curious about is the hot oil ladled over the seared beef. What's the method called? or just more info on it? Thanks!

looks good, but I tend to not want to use that much oil unless deep frying or making confit. I think spoon basting the meat would be adequate to get the same flavor effects.

Don't know the method but they're saying it is olive oil in the comments. I would have no problem dousing that much olive oil on my food.

As an Italian, I can't imagine a meal without olive oil or garlic lol

Its called flashing. I like it SOMETIMES on sushi grade fish (skin on) to get the skin slightly crisp but never on meat. It's too greasy for my taste. Not something I personally would want to do with beef.

Also, the dudes in the vid are noobs....flashing requires INSANELY hot oil to work, since after it lands on the food it instantly cools....so if you want to properly flash something, you need the oil to be near 500F. Olive oil can't take that sort of temp without scorching and tasting like burnt pine.

interesting, thanks for the input! I'd just never seen that before, was real curious. You have any vids of flashing being done properly?
