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.
I haven't tried it yet, but this seems like a really great idea.
