Loose Concrete on Front Porch Due to Snow and Salt

I didn't know about the more expensive rock salt.  I used the cheap stuff and now the mortar on my back steps is all cracked.  Masonry estimates are high.  Is there anything DIY I can do to keep the bricks intact for another year or two? It doesn't have to look great since it's my back steps.
