steak salt trick

If you are on a budget but really miss having a terrific steak, you are going to want to check out Cooking With Jack’s video on making a Poor Man’s Filet. You can have a great steak while sticking to your budget.

To test out this recipe, Jack got the cheapest slice of meat from the butcher and had it cut in half. This allowed him to do a side by side comparison.

Using only sea salt (or kosher salt) and allowing it to sit on the steak, Jack ends up with an amazingly tender and very inexpensive piece of meat. Don’t be afraid to put too much salt on the steak because you will be washing it off before cooking it.

After watching the video below, you will probably want to try this!

What a difference salt made on that tough piece of meat! It really tenderized it. It’s such an easy way to eat a great meal on a budget. A lot of people who commented on the video tried this Poor Man’s Filet with a lot of success. There were many rave reviews for this simple recipe.

Here what Jack recommends to dress up a cheap piece of meat:

steps for tenderizing: — coat entire top of steak with coarse salt. — leave sitting out on counter for 1 hour per inch of meat — completely wash off salt. Pat dry the meat with a paper towel — cook and season as you normally would. Don’t add any type of salt while cooking. Not garlic salt, onion salt or regular salt. Enjoy!

There are many ways to cook a steak. When I’m not able to use the grill, I get out my cast iron skillet. It helps speed up the cooking process and cooks it very evenly. Not to mention, it gets a great sear on the meat.
