    HOW TO GRILL ON A

    It's All About The Block!

    Posted by Lynsey S

    STEP 1: PICK YOUR BLOCK

    Make sure you pick the right size block for your grill. 
    A starter size would be about an 8x8x2 inch block

    STEP 2: HEAT SLOWLY

    Slow and steady wins the race on this one, especially the first few times you use the block
    The Golden Rule of heating a salt black
    20 min. on low
    20 min. on medium
    20 min. on high
    Sprinkle a few drops of water on the block and if it sizzles and disappears immediately, the block is ready

    STEP 3: PLACE STEAK ON THE BLOCK

    Make sure the whole steak is set on the block for even grilling

    STEP 4: FLIP THE STEAK

    Use a thin metal spatula or tongs, NO PLASTIC!
    Cooking Time:
    1-2 min. per side for any thin steak
    4-5 min. per side for any thicker cuts of meat
    Cook to preferred temperature

    STEP 4: CLEAN AND STORE THE SALT BLOCK

    Let the block cool for 1 hour or until cool to the touch
    Important tips to keep in mind when getting ready to clean the block
    Moisten a sponge or scouring pad with NO SOAP
    Scrub the block to remove any stuck on mess
    Wipe the block clean with a dry towel and repeat until all the food scraps are gone
    Leave the block out to air dry and you can store it anywhere
