How to use "Sizzle" in context?

When you think of a great steak dinner, what comes to mind? Juicy and flavorful, cooked to perfection on the grill, yes? But what about the juices that run across the cooking surface as the steak sizzles?

The steak's juices, called juices of combustion, form when the moisture in the steak cooks off, creating a hot gas. That gas, in turn, sparks the air above it, creating an instantaneous "sizzle."

The sound is impressive, to be sure, but the effect is even more so: The juices render the meat more succulent, adding depth of flavor and a crispy crust.
