I hate tough meat. I will refuse to eat it. Not that I think I am so special, but the way my throat is I have choked more than once. My husband does the cooking and after 23 years he knows what a pain I am. Once in a while we run into that type of meat.
I have to tell you a funny sorry about tough beef. When we lived in Jackson Michigan we have a gentleman’s farm. We had a few cows, pigs, chickens, and a turkey. We use to go to an auction to get hay and more animals. The auction was about an hour away and in a very small town. Well my husband bought a mother cow and her calf at the auction. He is not the best at backing a trailer in so there was a small gap when the trailer door was open, so he told me to hold the door. Now as most of you know I am not a small person but honestly I am not strong at all, never have been.
So I got the big idea to watch through the little gap to see the cow and what was going on. I swear the cow looked at me with the meanest look I have ever seen! I know but I will still swear to it. So the cow heads right to where I am holding the door, I laid my body against the door and dig in with everything I have. Well of course this 600 pound cow moved me out of her way very quickly. There we are with the baby in the trailer and a 600 pound cow running loose in this small town.
We chased her for 6 hours! We were almost ready to give up, and had no idea what to do. I told my husband to follow this car that was helping us chase this cow. Oh I almost forgot at least 6 cars and 3 police cars were helping us. So we turn and the police are sitting in front of a house. The cow had jumped a 6 foot privacy fence and scared the crap out of a lady working in her yard. I swear to you this is the truth, it is funny now but was not at the time! After another hour of trying to get the cow into the trailer we were finally loaded up and went home.
The mother cow was really wild and we ended up taking her to the butcher within 1 month. Well, and the reason I am telling you this story, she was the absolute toughest meat ever. I mean even the hamburger was tough! That should tell you how bad this was. So we gave the whole thing away. When you get through laughing at the thought of me running around, I was running hubby drove, a small town chasing this huge cow you can continue to read how this tenderizer could have helped me.
This will tenderize any cut of meat. Even that cow we had!
As you can see from all the blades this will cut through the connective tissue that makes meat tough.
It can save you time also. It can reduce cooking time up to 40% and cooks more even. You do not need to marinade the meat as long either. Can cut marinade time from 6 – 8 hours down to 2.
It helps retain juices so at the same time reduces shrinkage while enhancing the flavor. The price of beef right now we can all use the help. This has 48 razor-sharp blades.
I received this to give my honest opinion. Tell me what would you have done with our loose cow?
