If you are a connoisseur of meat categories, you will always choose the one piece of meat that is most beautiful to you, visually.
However, it can happen that the piece of beef is much harder than used to be or it could come from the somewhat older animals.
Want to prepare a delicious dish with meat, but you are aware that the meat that you bought is too hard and that it is impossible to make it thinner.
Listen to what Chinese chefs have to tell you on the topic - how to soften a hard meat?
You will be required:
- 1.10 pounds of meat
- Half a teaspoon of baking soda
- Cups of water
Make a mixture of water and soda.
Cut meat into thin slices.
Put the meat in a mixture of water and soda to rest in the refrigerator for about 4 hours.
Before preparing dish, rinse meat thoroughly with water to remove soda.
After this softening process, the meat can continue to marinate.
Meat that you get after such a procedure has a somewhat spongy and soft consistency. It is ideal for all Chinese dishes that are based on a small piece of meat, but also for the local traditional stews and the like.
