CL Tip of the Day: Tenderizing Meat

I always hate recipes that call for tenderizing or flattening a steak or chicken breast because of the mess!  Either it's splashy or I end up with little pieces of waxed paper embedded in it.  This could be a brilliant solution though.  Do you ever buy cereal that is packaged into those really, really tough bags - the kind that you have to open with a scissors?  Simply tap the crumbs out of the next one you get and save it in a clean place for your next tenderizing need.  Not only are these bags super tough, but they're food grade plastic and will enclose both sides of the meat.  And they're free.
Subtitle: Why didn't I think of that?
I haven't tried it yet, but this seems like a really great idea.
