Who's cooking on salt blocks


Recommended Posts

Works fairly well for marinaded thinly sliced flank steak.

I found out the hard way that the block cannot have any moisture in it at all before warming (read: explosion).

If you wash it off, even with a wet towel, it can take a good 24hrs to dry thoroughly.

Melting chocolate onto a cold block is also a good show.

I wonder if you could safely speed that up by stashing it in a low oven.
