Just before cooking, moisten surface of meat with water. Sprinkle tenderizer evenly over meat (1 tsp. per 1 lb.). Do not add salt. Pierce meat with fork at 1/2-inch intervals. Cook immediately. When preparing thicker cuts of meats, let stand 30 minutes before cooking.
SALT, DEXTROSE, BROMELAIN (TENDERIZER), AND CALCIUM SILICATE (ADDED TO MAKE FREE FLOWING).
1/4 tsp. (1.1g)
Bromelain is naturally found in pineapple, and is a natural meat tenderizer. Cool your jets Penny, it's not that salty. Let the meat rest (covered) in fridge after sprinkling on the surface of the meat a few hours. It's very good to use on tougher cuts of meat. And no, it will not 'tenderize' your stomach. I've seen that remark so many times on the internet, it's just hype. And no, I have no association with McCormick. I just know the chemistry of Bromelain, and it's excellent useage on pieces of meat I'd need DOG canines to chew with otherwise.

McCormick "unseasoned" meat tenderizer is heavily seasoned: with salt, Salt, SALT and more salt!!!!!!! The ingregediet list should have salt as the first six ingredients. Even after you rinse the meat it is so salty it's almost inedible--tender, but too salty to be eaten. Find another brand that isn't all salt!
