Why You Should Start Using Tenderizer Powder For Steaks
Tenderizing tough cuts of meat can be achieved through various methods, like manual pounding with a mallet and tenderizers to break down collagen fibers.
Meat tenderizer is a chemical powder containing enzymes like bromelain. It offers a convenient and efficient option without altering the meat's flavor.
The brand McCormick suggests one teaspoon of their tenderizer per pound of meat. Thicker cuts need more time to tenderize, but don't let it sit too long, or it'll become mushy.
Using powdered tenderizers on steak, especially on tougher cuts like flank and skirt, makes it easier to eat and levels the playing field regarding tenderness and flavor.
