Great Steaks from Cheap Meat

I came across How to Turn Cheap “Choice” Steaks into Gucci “Prime” Steaks [Via]. Go read it for the explanation but here is the secret:

Massively salt your steaks 15 min - 1 hour before grilling.
Notice that I didn’t say, "sprinkle liberally" or even "season generously." I’m talking about taking a small handful of kosher salt and literally coating your meat until you can’t see red.

It should resemble a salt lick.

Funny how this should surprise me in the least. This has been the secret to Newfoundland cooking for centuries.
