True? Plan on trying my next day off (on Monday). Anyone else know how to get a good tender steak?
This definitely works, though I wouldn't let it sit quite that long because it will make the steak a bit saltier than you want it. 30 minutes is probably better.
If it's already a good cut of meat, I wouldn't bother with the salting thing. That's more for making a cheaper cut taste like a better cut.
