    How to tenderize the meat with baking soda

    Depending on whether you have a large piece of meat in front of you that you want to grill or stew, or smaller pieces, for example for strips of meat *, you have to use the baking soda differently. 

    Tenderize a large piece of meat

  • Sprinkle the baking soda over the meat.

  • Massage it well into the surface of the meat.

  • Let the meat rest in the refrigerator for three to four hours.

  • Rinse off the baking soda and season the meat to taste.

  • Then prepare as usual.

    Also interesting: restaurants deliberately cook their meat incorrectly - and that is the reason.

    Tenderize small pieces of meat

  • Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 100 ml of water per 300 g of meat.

  • Soak the meat in this solution for about 15 minutes.

  • After that, rinse the meat, season it, and then cook it as usual.

  • If you let the meat soak in the solution for a longer time, it doesn't matter - neither in a positive nor in a negative sense.
