Getting tender with my Cave Tool!

I love spices and flavors of all sorts, but my husband is more of a salt and pepper guy.  My work around is that I can get away with adding spice to a meat if I can make that meat so tender that it melts in the mouth.  After a ton of experimenting I found the best way to do this was to not only add some liquid, either your sauce or just plan water/chicken stock and cover for 3/4 of your cooking time, but to make sure the meat was well tenderized.

 In the past I typically would tenderize my meat using a fork or regular old knife, but ran into a few issues.  The fork doesn't always go deep enough in larger/thicker slabs of meat.  It also doesn't go through meat that may have a little defrosting to go all that well making it hard to successfully use a marinade.  The knife brings with it the obvious potential for injury issue as your stabbing at something instead of slicing something.  Your slices will be larger which can affect the external presentation of the wood since you will be slicing it creating a new shape instead of creating the little wholes.  Plus, the larger slices just allow for fluid loss and tend to create dryer sections of the meat.
Finding a better way to tenderize was awesome.

Cave Tools Meat Tenderizer Review:
I was very excited to use this tool!  It has 48 stainless steel blades which are large enough to allow for sauce and spice to enter your meat, but small enough to keep the shape of the meat intact.  The spacing of the little knifes are key to fully tenderizing your meat. The top plastic protects you from cutting yourself while allowing you a larger area to tenderize quickly.  It has a protective cover for the blades for when your not using this tool making it reach in drawer friendly.  I used this after putting my spices in that way the spices would get pushed down into the meat to allow the taste to be diffuse into more of the meat itself.  It made meat prep safer, easier, and took less time!
