Typically when I cook steak, I salt/pepper it and then leave it out for a while to warm up. Next, I preheat my non-stick pan, put in olive oil, and add the steak.
However, I recently bought a set of All Clad stainless steel pans. I’ve never cooked with stainless steel before and am worried about pitting.
Will adding a pre-salted steak to a preheated stainless steel pan (coated in olive oil) result in pitting? If so, how/when should I salt to avoid pitting?
