After Depinder won her second immunity, it was elimination time on MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 20. As it’s the Masters Week, judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo made sure the last master gracing the show would bring the required punch to the know. Well, that is exactly what had happened.
Curtis Stone, known for his butchery skills, graced the Masters Week of MasterChef Australia via hologram. He showed the contestants different ways of butchery cuts of beef. It was a wonderful masterclass for the contestants, and well, the last one for someone. So it wasn’t a hard guess that MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 20’s is called the Butchery Elimination Challenge.
The elimination challenge was different from what we have seen so far in MasterChef Australia Season 13. The challenge was divided into two rounds, and the contestants were paired together. It was an auction challenge where Andy, Mel and Jock gave them 100 minutes. Every pair has to give up a certain amount of time to win the type of beef steak they want to cook. Along with the beef dish, they have to serve two side dishes too.
Sabina and Linda got gravy beef, and they didn’t give up on any time. They waited till the end of the auction and hence, got 100 minutes to cook their dish. Tom and Elise got short ribs with 90 minutes of cook timing, Aaron and Eric had 73 minutes to cook the blade. Kishwar and Pete got the tenderloin with 65 minutes of cook timing; Jess and Scott had 49 minutes to cook their oyster blade; Brent and Tommy had 59 minutes to make something out of their scotch fillet. Dan & Justin got 48 minutes to cook with the Sirloin steak, and Amir and Conor got 80 minutes to cook their Knuckles.
The 2 pairs which make the least impressive dish will be second to round two. Amir-Conor and Dan-Justin made the least impressive dish of the MasterChef Australia elimination round 1 among all the pairs. So, unfortunately, the four contestants have to go to the second round to prove that they deserve to be part of the competition.
In the second round of MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 20, the contestants must cook something they’ve mastered in 75 minutes. Justin cooked sweet potato tacos, Dan decided to make duck bao buns, and Amir decided to go with falafel as he thinks he is best. Finally, Conor decided to make another ice cream because he thinks that he has managed to win people’s hearts with different ice-cream flavours so far in Masterchef. So, he decides to serve the judges green olive ice cream with revani.
The only contestant for whom the cook went smoothly was Justin. Unfortunately, Dan forgot to add baking powder in his buns batter. So he had to make another batch. When Jock tasted Amir’s falafel, he asked if they were washed. Amir refused and realised they don’t taste good. Hence, he had to make another batch when there were only 10 minutes left. Conor’s ice cream didn’t have a smooth texture, but he hoped that the flavours would save him.
During the tasting time in MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 20, Justin’s sweet potato tacos won judges’ hearts. Dan’s duck bao buns were also impressive. Amir’s falafels were tasty, but they weren’t enough to be a masterful dish. Conor’s green olive ice cream with revani not only had a rough texture, but it also didn’t taste delicious enough. Hence, Conor was eliminated from the show.
