Which is better? I currently cook with butter and coconut oil, but have read that olive oil contains a greater amount of vitamin E than CO. Should I switch?

Pre season the meat a few hours ahead with salt, put it closely under a very hot broiler and cook about a total of 7 minutes. I don't add any oils or butter. Hamburgers usually in a pan with some coconut oil to prevent sticking to pan.

Extra virgin is fine to cook with, just don't burn it (as with any oil). I've dumped coconut oil. Olive oil or butter is all I bother with anymore, red palm oil for vitamin E too.

It's like walnut oil, probably good in moderation, for flavoring, but don't cook with it. It is also expensive.
