Jack's brother sent him a link to a cool method on how to tenderize meat, so of course he HAD to try it out and then share it with us all when he found out how wonderfully it worked. Jack says that this meat tenderization process can take up to one hour or as little as fifteen minutes depending on how thick the cut of meat you have is. He bought the cheapest piece of meat that he could find that cost him only $1.99. He had the butcher cut it in half so that he could show the comparison from the same cut of meat, one he will be showing the tenderization method and the other he won't be. All you have to do for this method is put your meat in a pan, he shows himself putting both of the cuts of meat into separate pans, but this is just for comparison sake. You can just cook your meat according to the directions he gives. He takes very corse sea salt and liberally covers the cut of meat with the salt. For every inch that the meat, you let the meat sit for an hour. So if the meat is an inch thick, you would let it sit for an hour.
What the salt does is works on tenderizing the meat by breaking up the protein in the muscle, making it more tender. The salt gets washed off before the meat is cooked and then it is grilled up. They look totally different! You have to see it for yourself, so make sure you watch the video!
