Fortunately, there are a few tricks to making cheap meat taste like high quality meat. The first secret is cooking time and temperature. To prevent a cheap piece of meat from tasting tough and chewy, put it in your slow cooker. If you cook the meat in a slow cooker at a low, long temperature, the meat will retain its moisture and flavor. You’ll get a tender, moist piece of meat that isn’t bland.

Then, a simple salt rub can totally enhance the flavor of a cheap piece of meat. Simply coat the meat with coarse salt and let it sit at room temperature for about an hour. Once the time is up, brush the steak and cook it, seasoning it with the herbs and spices of your choice. Your steak will taste much better than you ever imagined!
