Re: Salting mburger meat 101

Good stuff. My dad would salt one side of the burger, then put the salted side down on the grill then put salt on the other side. Works for me since I was 12 years old.

Re: Salting mburger meat 101

Well the conventional wizdumb would seem to indicate not to salt beans till they is nearly cooked cuz adding salt early with give them a tough skin. So most folks thinks that is true I think. Now my dearly deceased MIL made the best Pintos on earth using water salt and beans and she also put a Tablespoon of salt in em when they first started cooking. Now she did not put salt in the soak water and she only soaked for one hour. She kept a tea kettle simmering to add water if needed. I only found out recently she put a T. of sugar in em too..somewhere during the process.

Re: Salting mburger meat 101

the new wisdom is that salt in the soaking water does not penetrate
the beans meat, thus giving it the grainy, mealy texture.
It does however affect the surface of the bean, so when it cooks,
the beans become more tender and plump. In fact, my beans are soaking
right now.

It's important to rinse well after soaking, to get rid of the salt.

Re: Salting mburger meat 101

Well this is fast turning into a version of Burl Ives old song about the lady who swallered the fly..then she of course had to swaller a spider to catch the fly..then she had to swaller every critter in the barnyard to eat the previous critter etc. Sorta like making a Turkdunken seems like to me. Now here we go with the salt. We got to use it but got to get rid of it too. This is very cornfusing

Re: Salting mburger meat 101

I first tried the salt soaking thing here viewtopic.php?f=3&t=18824 I was skeptical going in, but very happy with the outcome. Brining beans has already become a normal thing in my kitchen.

Re: Salting mburger meat 101

Well I went and re read that old post and see where the young gentleman mentioned soaking the beans in salt water but didn't notice any times vs amounts techniques etc. Guess somebody have to find a crow bar to pry the info outta his tight lipped coola

Re: Salting mburger meat 101

I'm with Bigwheel on the bean saltin, On the Camelia brand they sell here in La. the instructions say to salt after the 1st hour of cooking.

If beans are old/stale they will never git tender. Allways grab a bag from the back of the shelf, them sneaky stock boys put the fresh ones there.

I even bought a old bag of frozen beans before. I brung em back to the store too in a damm zip lock

Re: Salting mburger meat 101

America’s Test Kitchen recently advocated soaking beans in salt water (three tablespoons table salt and one gallon water) for 8 to 24 hours before cooking. Drain and rinse to remove remaining salt, then cook as usual in unsalted water until tender.
