    Cooked on a Himalayan Salt block. Never tried it before. Got some steaks for New Years Day.

    What am I supposed to be doing.

    New Year… tamer you?

    Of the many thoughts for post content that I anticipated, a salt block was not one of them.

    Never.

    Got given it and have no idea. Google does not really help with regards cooking steak, browning it but not the cooking.

    Hahahaha but to be fair if the steak tasted good, it’s worth sharing the knowledge about salt block cooking! I’d never heard of it.

    I usually have stubble but ever since my birthday when she shouted at me to shave before we went out to dinner (29th October) I have refused to shave. Apparently I'm stubborn.

    Stubborn? Maybe.
    Argument winner? Definitely.

    Long story short.
    Nice steak with lots of salt is tasty.
    Who'd have thought it?

    Salt and pepper the steak 1 day before gives a much better result. Skip the salt block. It's just a hassle, and some made up “cool" way to cook. You can do the same with any rock, but what's the point? The frying pan is invented.

    Don't salt in advance, it draws the moisture out.

    Salt it in the pan and throw some butter in for the last minute or two.

    I’ve cooked using these and also lava rocks and a few other ways….
    It’s no different to use a very hot pan except you can’t control the temperature
    It’s a nice novelty
    Personally I season an hour or so before an let the meat rest. Use rape seed oil the hugest heat for 1 min each side to sear and seal the steaks. Turn the heat to medium low and cook for another 5 mins with some butter chucked in to kinda caramelise the outside. That gives me very nice medium rare fillets

    No, salt it and cover it with foil and put it in the refrigerator. It will make the meat more tender, and the salt will penetrate into the meat and flavor it. Salting just before only leaves the salt on top. Try it, and you will be amazed. 1 hour before is a minimum, but even that makes a huge difference.

    100%
    Kosher salt (more than you think) and some black pepper
    Minimum of an hour
