Just wait until you taste your steaks with this brine, you will be in heaven lol! it's a fantastic brine for steaks and also any cut of beef. The brine is enough for 6 (1-inch) steaks or a few less thicker steaks. Do not brine the steaks anymore than 6 hours, 8 hours maximum, and please DO NOT brine for 24 hours! The steaks must be left out on the counter for a couple of hours to bring down to almost room temperature, this is an important step to relax the meat fibers, this will create a more tender and juicy steak, so start this recipe early in the day. Use kosher salt *only* for this brine!
