Salted Steak Revisited W/Q/View Talk About Juicy WOW

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well, I did this with a ribeye with plain sea salt and it was a little salty. So I thought I would try this with a leaner and tougher cut. I had some what they call here Petite sirloins in the freezer. Since TQ is 99% salt and the rest nitrates and nitrities I thought I woud try it, always open for experiments.

I forgot to get a before picture, oh well.

I rubbed it with TQ and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinsed it off real good. Added some Youshidas icon_wink.gif and Garlic and lemon pepper.

Seared for about 4 minutes and finally added some EVOO to get a sear because of a lack of fat. Fliped and another 4 minutes. Almost burned my chest, lol. You can see in one minute the juice pouring out.

This is Carol's with the steak.

Before finishing she wanted me to nuke for a bit. Now look at the juice, nothing added, man oh man. Over all it was good, could have been a bit more tender, but for 1.99 and still get your steak fix why not?

I'll be doing this one the same way for me later, but I will let it sit for longer to see if it actually gets more tender.

Actually I just rubbed it and put in the fridge. We'll see.

Thanks for watching.

I like using the salt method on cheaper cuts of steak. Now I'm going to have to give the TQ a try.

Ron, I use that salt method everytime we do steaks. Man, is that a slick trick. I usually have a marinade of some sort and when the salt turns from white to clear, I wipe as much off as I can, then a real quick rinse under the faucet then into the marinade. Man oh man, does this work magic on the less than tender cuts. Tired it on ribeyes, but I dont think it works as well on cuts like that.

Slow down Ron, I'm trying to keep up but you keep moving ahead. Gotta try it sometime soon. Haven't had a steak for a long time.PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

That looks really good!So what you did was just rub a little sea salt on it and let it sit for awhile?And that helped with the tenderness?
