Brig had posted re: using a salt brine (I think) to tenderize meat prior to cooking. I have searched all the ways I know and come up w/ nothing.
If anyone knows where that post is or what she posted, I'd sure appreciate the info or post info.
In searching the CR4YT book for this info, I also just read that for fish or meat, you should remove all skin and fat. Boil water in a pot large enough to cover the meat, turn off heat and let meat soak in water 3-5 min. It won't alter texture or flavor but will remove any chemicals that have resulted from the oxidation of the meat's surface. Rock on!!!  ;) The things ya learn!!   ;D

or marinating with pineapple and lemon juice will also help.

papaya seeds are well known tenderizers.

I believe Brig wrote a blog on meats and crock pot cooking.....
check her archives.

I checked her archives, but didn't see any titles I thought would have that info. Guess I'll go have another look-see. Thanks!
P.S.  Ahhhhhh, I found it. :-)

If you go to the website link listed in the blog entry, there are several recipes for brines as well as methods of brining. You might also check at http://www.foodnetwork.com and look under Alton Brown's recipes.

I was hoping to find something to make my beef really really tender. Spoiled to aged meat.  :'(      Just can't afford it all the time. But once you eat THAT, nothing tastes quite as good. Oh well, gotta do what ya gotta do. LOL
