Tip & How-To about Home
Here are easy instructions on how to tenderize different kinds of meat:
Wrap the meat between two layers of plastic wrap lying it on the counter.
If you want, before wrapping the meat, you can sprinkle a bit of kosher salt and ground black pepper on it, to enhance the flavor.
If you have a mallet start hammering on the meat with the tool. You will see it flatten and spread.
If you do not have a mallet you can just use a tin foil tube and hammer the meat with that.
The method to tenderize chicken breasts is the same as for stake. You just need to be much more delicate because chicken is a more tender meat and tends to rip more easily.
Whole chicken and turkeys:
If instead of filet, breast or stake you want to tenderize a whole chicken or a whole turkey, it is better to use, instead of a mallet or meat hammer, a kind of tenderizer that uses its stainless steel small knives to penetrate the meat. This kind of tenderizer looks like a rectangular tool that one holds with a hand and that, when set on the meat and pushed, its knives come out and penetrate the meat, tenderizing it.

So, to summarize, any kind of animal meat (including fish and sea food) that can lie flat on some film can be beaten or hammered with a mallet or other tools, like a aluminium tube or a daikon radish. While whole birds and meats that need to keep their shape can be pierced and penetrated with a meat tenderizer characterized by small knives rather than a hammering head.
