Di, thank you so much for the tip about baking soda

in water as a meat tenderizer!

I always dreaded cooking pork chops because they wouldn't cook up tender for me. But tonight, I decided to try the tenderizer recipe, and it worked great!

I did, however, read different ratios of baking soda to water, and some said that sometimes there would be a weird taste to the meat and advised rinsing well. So, I used 1/2 teaspoon to a cup of water, and I rinsed the pork well after a 15 minute soak, rubbing with my fingers. Voila!

THANK YOU! :thup

'm so glad it worked for you! Haven't tried it for pork, but it's supposed to work on all meats. *NM*
Yes, I'm excited about it! I've avoided chicken breasts for way over a decade,
Aw, that's sweet! *NM*
