I saw a video on youtube by accident, as usual, in which an American guy showed how to tenderise a cheap piece of meat to make it seem like a more expensive cut. So simple - just marinade it in sea salt which 'draws out all the water, and opens up the texture of the meat. He showed the open pores. W...
