Nowadays, the price of a prime-cut steak at the butcher’s counter is downright outrageous. For the same price of fresh-cut meat, you can just go out for dinner and avoid all the cooking and cleaning.
Thankfully though, there are a few methods to cooking cheaper meat cuts taste like a high-quality steak. The first trick lies in cooking time and temperature.
To avoid a cheap piece of meat tasting tough, dry and chewy, use a slow cooker. When the meat is cooked on a low temperature in a slow cooker for a long time, it tends to retain the juiciness and flavor.
You’ll end up with a soft, tender piece of meat that’s anything but bland.
Furthermore, a quick salt rub can further enhance the flavor of an inexpensive piece of meat. Just coat the meat in coarse salt and let it rest out at room temperature for 60 minutes.
After, using a brush, remove the extra salt and cook it. Season it with whatever spices and herbs you like. Your steak will certainly taste far better than you’d imagined it could!
