Meat tenderizer

Typically refers to a powdered naturally derived enzyme powder. The enzyme most commonly used is papain which comes from papayas. Meat is sprinkled with the powder and the enzymes help to break down the meat fibers. The same result can be obtained by marinating meat in papaya or pineapple juice. Alternately, meat can be tenderized by using a meat mallet. Purchase powdered meat tenderizer in most grocery stores.
