Bompas & Parr joined forces with a team from Syracuse University to cook the steak over a lava flow, which, according to Eater, was 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit. The company is also known for cooking with lightning, which flash cooks at a staggering 50,000 degrees Farenheit.

While the steak ends up looking a little more charred than we typically like, it's not like we'd turn down the volcanic meal. That's just cool.
