You Can Do It
I made an important discovery today. You know those bulky metal "meat tenderizers" you use in the kitchen to pound out meat? Well, about 3 weeks ago mine went kaput. I had bought a cheap one and metal remnants were starting to come off onto the meat when I used it, so I threw it away. I like the result of pounded meat cause it lends a much more tender, flavorful taste. So, this morning as I was preparing some chicken to be marinated for dinner tonight...instead of using my useless, metal-oozing tool, I just used my fist! Pound pound POUND and........done. Easy peasy and I didn't even need to wash another kitchen tool. It worked just as well too.....no...better. I just covered the meat beforehand with parchment paper to prevent splatters.
