I'm no physicist at all, so I'll take a shot at a theory on this.

I'll assume that the atomic levels carries the properties of the quantum by default, so if you replicate the atoms of a yolk and shell in a specific pattern, you'll get the quantum properties of that yolk and shell automatically.
No they don't.
You can't create an exact copy of quantum information under any circumstances without destroying the original (google no cloning theorem).

The only way I can see a steak not tasting like steak, is if the replicator replicates a couple of 'wrong' molecules in it
You do not seem to understand how informationally complex living systems are.
There's a HUGE difference between the bare ingredients and a living tissue made of them.
