A natural Papaya-based enzymatic meat tenderizer! This really works!
Papain, made from extracting enzymes from papaya skins, breaks down tough meat fibers, and has been used since before European contact to tenderize meat eaten in its native South America.
Meat tenderizers in powder form with papain as an active component are widely sold and the culinary use of papaya peel has featured in research papers.
Use approximately 1 tsp per 1 lb of meat, marinate (over night if possible), and your meat will melt in your mouth!
