Buttermilk brined steak

Buttermilk brined and fried chicken is an excellent way to get tender and juicy chicken. But can you brine steak in it also.
If you know me, I had to try it. I bought the best steak I could find and did the test. You know what? Buttermilk brined steak works fantastic.

  • steaks thumb thick
  • 500 ml buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp salt

  • Mix the buttermilk with the rest of the ingredients and put in the steak. Let this brine in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Take the steak out of the buttermilk and lay it on a cooling rack. Pat it dry with some paper towel and let it air dry on the rack while you start your grill.
