Step 1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add the tempeh and salt. Toss the tempeh to coat with the oil. Spread the tempeh into a single layer. Add a splash of water or broth to thinly coat the bottom of the skillet.
Step 2. Immediately cover the skillet with a tight-fitting lid. Cook for 4 minutes until the water has evaporated.
Repeat: Stir and add another splash of broth or water. Cover and cook for 2 minutes more, or until the water is evaporated.
