I pre-seasoned my steak w/salt, pepper, garlic and lime. Did I ruin it by putting the salt on it - will it pull out the moisture? Planning on cooking it
Won't know until you try it. My bet is it will be ok.
Sam is a trusted home cook.
Here's a bit on the science of salting steak.
The results is either salt it cook within 10 mins.
Or 40mins before cooking.
the in between times can draw out moisture. The longer time allows the moisture to retreat.
Thanks for the great feedback and link. Love food pickle. Sent this on behalf of a friend who was concerned she ruined the the steak her husband bought.
