China’s newest internet start uses office supplies to cook her meals at work

How to use your computer (not an app — your actual computer) to grill a real steak: While most of us scurry to the phone to order our lunch (thank you, Elmenus), or at most prepare simple meals at home to pack to work, China’s newest internet superstar Miss Yeah is pushing the envelope with the elaborate dishes she so ingeniously cooks using everyday office supplies and equipment (or anything at hand that she happens to think might work).

She popped popcorn in a soda can, made a DIY oven with a desk drawer and a light bulb, and grilled beef with an iron,” Siyi Chen writes on QZ. A foodie with no culinary raining bored with conventional cooking shows and clips, Miss Yeah’s creative ways won her a massive following in very little time. When, exactly, she has time to work is beyond us. Watch her take her computer apart and put it back together to grill a steak (runtime 3:21).
