How to Pound Meat into Cutlets

Sometimes our kitchen tools fail us, that's where this tip comes in.

When pounding meat for cutlets or for tenderizing, a meat mallet often tears the plastic bags or wax paper. To solve the problem, I purchased a large rubber mallet at the hardware store. Not only does it work great for pounding and tenderizing meats, but it’s also indispensable for breaking apart bags of frozen foods, such as vegetables and fruit, allowing me to get just the amount I need. It’s also ideal for breaking up chunks of ice.
