There are several methods of tenderizing meat for cooking. In addition to using a meat mallet or various marinades, you can use a meat tenderizing powder. A tenderizing powder contains natural enzymes, usually papain or bromelain, which break down the meat`s fibers. With correct application, using this powder will result in a tender piece of meat when cooked. If you`re in the market for a nice meat tenderizer

As far as using it, well...
Combine the tenderizing powder with a seasoning or marinade of your choice. For example, if you were going to put salt and pepper on your steak, first combine the tenderizing powder with the salt and pepper before you apply it to the steak. Because there are many different meat tenderizing powders available in stores, read the product label for information on the correct amount of tenderizing powder you should use in relation to the weight of the meat. For example, you may need to use 1 tbsp. of tenderizing powder per pound of meat.
Sprinkle the tenderizing powder or combination of tenderizing powder and seasoning or marinade over the meat right before you are ready to cook it.
Poke the entire surface of meat gently with a fork. By doing this, the tenderizing powder will penetrate the meat, allowing the enzymes to break down more of the meat`s tough fibers.
Cook your meat immediately for optimum taste and tenderness, according to your recipe.
As lame as it sounds, I`m "new" at cooking meat. I mean I`ve baked chicken and cooked hot dogs forever, but ground meat and such I`d always leave to my husband. Since I am a stay at home mom, I figured it`s time I got into it too so I figured I`d need to get a good meat tenderizer such as this Meat Tenderizer you see above
. I love how simple it is to use. Pull off the protective cover, twist to lock/unlock, then press down over your meat to release the small individual blades! That`s it! The design is really ingenious and this actually makes the product very safe. It’s also spring loaded so when you push down, the tenderizer is pushing back up for ease of use.
As far as washing the tenderizer, I recommend doing this immediately after use. The directions recommend warm soapy water or the use of the dishwasher. I’d recommend hand-washing to make sure you get anything that may be stuck in the tenderizer out, as the small groves of the safety cover could possibly get food trapped in there.
Overall, this is a great choise for a tenderizer that works very well and is easy to clean. Not to mention is quite affordable to top it all off. Needless to say, I would certainly recommend it!
