Today I had a Chinese customer walk into the store, and I asked her how Chinese restaurants get there beef tender. she laughed and looked both ways and said "Baking Soda".
I said Baking soda, and she said "yep".
so as a experiment I bought my self a few pounds of beef and sliced it up. made an Asian marinade and added some baking soda to it. I let it marinade for about 30 mins and put a few pieces in the frying pan.
Low and behold it worked the meat was just like you get at an Asian restaurant.
