Gordon Ramsay did not mince his words when a fan showed him his "perfect" ribs recipe – calling the man a "donut" when he messed up with the carrots at the end.
The TV chef was doing a TikTok duo with an admirer and fellow cooking enthusiast who showed him how he made an elaborate meal of braised short ribs with carrots and mashed potatoes.
In the clip, TikTok user @thatdudecancook confidentially says: "If this dish doesn't get a nice reaction from Gordon Ramsay then nothing will."
"Alright," says Gordon, sounding cynical.
The American chef starts by seasoning the marbled short ribs with rosemary salt and searing in a pan until brown on both sides.
Next, he fries garlic and shallots in a pan, adding tomato paste and Cabernet wine and reducing by half.
The chef then adds beef stock and thyme and a bay leaf and he then simmers it for several hours.
Much to Gordon's approval, he adds some carrots to the pan to be braised in the meaty juices.
"They're going to be delicious by the way," Gordon says with a smile.

When it comes to plating up the dish, the celebrity chef looks satisfied with the tender meat and thick sauce but is outraged when little orange balls of carrot are added – with the disappearance of the braised carrots unexplained.
Gordon is horrified by what he sees and says: "What the hell? Why are you playing connect four with those carrots?
"Where are the original carrots that you cooked for two-and-a-half hours?
"The carrots are the flavour you donut!"
Gordon's reaction had his other fans in stitches and the video made its way onto Reddit, with more than 28,000 up-votes and hundreds of amused comments.
One wrote: "He was so close to winning that sweet sweet approval from daddy Ramsay."
"Where are the original carrots?!" asked another bewildered viewer.
Other people were stumped by why he didn't simply serve the carrots after all the effort that went into braising them, but some reckoned it was a cover-up.
"He can't because they disintegrated after being in the pan for two hours," wrote one.
