"A meat tenderizer is hand-powered tool used to tenderize slabs of meat in preparation for cooking the meat."..."Tenderizing meat with the mallet softens the fibers, making the meat easier to chew, and easier to digest. It is useful when preparing particularly tough cuts of steak, and works well when broiling or frying the meat.[1] It is also used to "pound out" dishes such as chicken fried steak or schnitzel to be wider and thinner."

Meat, prepare to be tenderized!


Here are easy instructions on how to tenderize different kinds of meat:

Steak:
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.

Chicken breasts:
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.
In this video you can see an example on minute 0:25 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9CfHH2iSJc

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.
Have fun!

How can I reinstall the back?


Since I can't see the actual watch, I am going to assume that the back did not unscrew or have four tiny screws that you removed. Place the watch face down on a padded surface such as a towel or mouse pad. If the back has a notch for the stem, position it accordingly to prevent damage to the stem during installation. Using your little jeweler's hammer (you do have one, don't you?) or a suitable substitute (no, I am not suggesting a meat tenderizer), whack the back evenly until it seats.
For large face "show-off" watches, I sometimes use a suitable socket from my socket wrench set to apply even pressure to the back as I tap it gently back in place.

Is this gluten free?


I've looked it up and can't find anything to say that it is not gluten free. However, I know that 5th season products that are gluten free generally say so on the label. This product, while it doesn't appear to have gluten in it, could contain gluten. Therefore, my advice to you is use your judgement based on your level of intollerance/diet.

Do i need to be strong in order to use a meat tenderizer?


Not really. Most meat tenderizers have rows of pyramid-shaped tenderizers on their head, which soften the fiber, or have a series of blades that are designed to puncture the meat and cut into the fibers of the muscle. Therefore there is no need to really put much strength in the action.

What is a meat tenderizer?


This is used to tenderize meat before you cook it. It makes the meat easier to chew and digest. You can also use it before you boil or fry meat.
You can do this mechanically, with something like a meat mallet that cuts up the meat fibres. You can do it thermally by putting the temperature really high to break down the connective tissue of the meat. The last method is enzymatic and uses enzymes to break down the collagen. This method is either slow with dry-aging the meat or you can use fruit to marinate the meat.

My dog keeps eating the litter out of my cats litter box. What can I do to put an end to this?


There are a few things you can do to prevent your dog from being attracted to your cats litter box. First and foremost, you should try to remove your cats waste as quickly as possible. You can also try sprinkling some meat tenderizer onto your cats food before ingestion. This will help make the smell of your cats ***** less enticing to your dog. Lastly, I would recommend placing your cats litter box somewhere that your dog cannot reach it; possibly by raising the litter box or placing it in a room only accessible through a small cat door.

How to change the bulb in oven cant get cover off


Hi, W/D here.
If your cover is the screw-on type, it takes a little patience to get it off. Try tapping the cover lightly with a rubber/wooden/plastic hammer or similar object. (I have used a wooden meat tenderizer). You don't want to break it. When you tap it, begin unscrewing it as you tap. The globe will move slightly. The tendency when it does move is to try to completely remove the globe, but this will just cause it to jam again. When it gives just a little, rotate the globe back towards the closed position then back towards the opened position, each time working the globe between positions where the globe will jam. What is usually the case is that there is a bit of built up cooking material that gets in between the glass and metal threads, and over a period of time makes into a crusty substance. By working the globe without forcing it, the crust breaks down into a finer material and the globe will come off.
Best regards, --W/D--

What ever joint of meat i cook in the halagen oven it always ends up tough


You do not give much information so here is what I suggest not knowing what you have tried. Set it to a lower temperature and cook it for a longer time. Usually slower cooking makes things tender and still keeps them moist. Also, find a good marinating sauce or tenderizer to use before cooking.
