Meat Tenderizers contain bromelain, an enzyme that breaks down tissue.
The enzyme action stops only when heated so tenderizers must always be used prior to cooking.
If tenderizer is left on meat too long before cooking, meats will become mushy.
Freezing will not completely stop the enzyme action.
Meat Tenderizer, Unseasoned, allows for the use of less expensive cuts of meats which may also be less tender.
Another use for Meat Tenderizer is to relieve the pain caused by bees, wasps, jellyfish, and coral. Mix the Meat Tenderizer with water and put the paste on the painful spot.
