How to tenderise meat
One of the most asked questions when it comes to cooking with meat is how to tenderise it? There are a few different ways you can do this, including using a mechanical method or xx. The first option is quick and easy, and just involves placing your meat between two pieces of baking paper and pounding it with a heavy object. A rolling pin can work well for this! This is the best option if you want your meat thin. Another way to tenderise is by marinating your meat. You can use dairy, acidic or enzymatic products to marinate; for example milk, lemon juice, or yoghurt. When you’ve made your marinate, coat your meat with it in a zip lock bag and place in the fridge for at least two hours.
How to smoke meat
Another frequently asked question when it comes to meat, is how to smoke it? If you don’t have a smoker then the easiest tool to use is a charcoal grill. You should begin by warming up your coals before placing wood chips on top. From there you can place your ribs on top of the grill and put the lid on for at least four hours.To finish? You can’t beat a glaze. Coat them in a tasty glaze before putting them back on the grill for the final 15-20 minutes of cooking.
