  3. Magic Creations is a 20 minute Beef Marinade you can purchase in your meat department. It is a powder you mix with a bit of water.
  4. You can also try a can of coke or beer in the slow cooker.

  13. The Korean friends I have said any fruit that begins with a P is good to grate and put on any meat. So they use papayas, pears, and pineapples. Puree the fruit and marinate the meat. Just don't soak the pineapple overnight, it will turn your meat into puree itself. This is a natural meat tenderizer.
  14. My Chinese friends say that you need to soak the meat in fresh water until there is no more blood. Apparently the blood is what makes it tough. some of the cooks will spend thirty minutes just squeezing the blood out the meat under running water.
  15. I am lazy so I like the Korean way better.
  16. But if you are in a super hurry, put a small amount of baking soda in the meat while it is cooking. But this works best if the meat is cut in bit size or sliced pieces.

  26. Brush them with a little vinegar(any kind) or lemon juice. Cover and cook over low heat. The acid in the vinegar or lemon juice really softens up tough meat.
