    I’ll be putting this to the test. I just bought eye of round and cut into 1 1/2 inch steaks much like a fillet.
    I covered very moderate in very corse salt. The type of salt used for pretzels. I will let sit in fridge for 4hrs for good measure then ill frill this evening. Eye of round is one of the toughest around so we shall see

      What a waste.. i rinsed vigorously and only added pepper. Was way to salty. My only saving grace was they were rare enough for me to slice up and throw in food dehydrator and turn into jerky. If i didnt have a jerky maker i would have been sol.

    A $1.99 steak in my neck of the woods is called a hot dog! You ain’t buying any beef steaks in S.E. Mo. for $1.99,
    I can tell you that!

    Where in the world is there a $1.99 a pound piece of beef? Cheap hamburger is now $3.99 a pound!

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

    I’m sorry to say this didn’t work for me very well. What I was pretty sure was going to be a tough steak certainly was, even after sitting under a pile of sea salt for more than an hour.

    You can do the same thing in a lot less time by using Adolf’s meat tenderizer. Why waste all that salt when just a little of this would do the same thing.

      I’m sure salt cost less than a store bought meat tenderizer!!!
