Wow! Where the heck do you come up with this stuff? I have to try this one!
Boyyyyy am I tired.
Your maternal grandfather was brilliant.
Sounds a bit like cooking with lava:
Same prinicple: the steam from the package prevents the whole thing from becoming charcoal.
You are going to collect all these and publish them somewhere, aren’t you?
Great idea, using a salt crust for red meat instead of the usual fish!
My guests will be even more alarmed when I breezily inform them that I got the recipe off the internet — from a guy who calls himself VodkaPundit.
Wow! Great recipe! I once used a similar recipe for my parent’s 25th anniversary surprise dinner. And yes, it works!
I used chuck roast ~2″ thick, coated with olive oil, then slathered with regular prepared yellow mustard. The same stuff used on your hot dogs. Finally coated with Kosher salt.
Cook directly over a fire hot enough to melt a horseshoe and … Ta Daa!
Gonna try your recipe soon!
Wow, this sounds like a great idea…would love to try. One of the best fishes I ever ate was in Turkey, baked (not grilled) in a salt crust, so I can imagine how this could be brilliant.
