Salting the steak is a "dry brine" technique that tenderizes the steak and makes it more flavorful. If you are using fine sea salt, cut the amount of salt in half.
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of kosher salt PER side of steak
Let salt: 1 hour per 1" thickness of steak. For example, if steak is 1/2" thick, then let salt for 30 minutes.
Rinse all salt off. Pat very dry with paper towel.
Season steak with pepper or other seasoning (do not add any additional salt)
