Use Baking Soda To Tenderize Meat

When making stews or soups, and the meat will not get tender, try dipping a large wet tablespoon in your baking soda box and stirring it into your pot. It will foam up and disappear, with no effect on the texture or taste, tenderizing your meat. It really works!

This is also good to take the acidity out of homemade tomato sauce, but you have to be careful as it really does foam and a little goes a long way.
