Steaks: Rinse well. Repeat.

There are so many cooking techniques out there.

None of them are “right” or “wrong” – but some leave me scratching my head and some are just, well, new to me.

This is one of those.

Here’s an ezine article about cooking “perfect steaks.” It suggests liberally salting the meat.


Then, RINSING off the salt before marinating.

Now THAT is a new one on me. But . . . that does not mean it isn’t a great thing to try. I just wasn’t ever taught to rinse beef.

Am I alone in this?

You CAN teach an old dog new tricks. I believe that. But I just don’t know how I feel about this one.

What are your thoughts????? Is this a killer technique I’ve been missing out on? Or does this miss the mark?
