How to Dry Brine a Steak in the Fridge

Dry brining steak is a great way to make sure your steak is super flavorful. Use this method on anything from ribeye to flank to filet cuts - in fact, this will work well on any beef cut! A good dry brine takes anywhere from 24-48 hours but you can short cut it if you need to.

ā€“ Paper towels or clean dish towel ā€“ Steak of choice ā€“ Kosher salt or seasoned salt



Pat the steak completely dry with paper towels or a clean dish towel.

Season the steak well with kosher salt or seasoned salt. The steak should be completely coated.

Place on a plate and in the fridge, uncovered. Let sit in the fridge for 3-48 hours.

Cook the steak using your favorite cooking method. I recommend sous vide.
