Step 1 always starts with selecting your meat. We chanced upon some excellent ribeye at Costco – which I’d never get the chance to do here in Singapore but in Canada, it’s an inexpensive way to feed a large family. The quality is good enough and the prep of the steaks adds to the flavour of any steak. Having said this, always go with the ribeye cut – they don’t call it the king of steaks for nothing. Cut your ribeye steaks to an inch and a half thickness.
Step 2 is a dry brine – about 1 hour before you’re ready to grill, liberally coat both sides of your steaks with Kosher salt. Not sea salt, not table salt but Kosher salt. If you use the others, you’ll over-salt the steaks and ruin them for sure! Once coated, throw the steaks back in the fridge.
