A meat tenderizer, meat mallet, or meat pounder is a hand-powered tool used to tenderize slabs of meat in preparation for cooking. Although a meat tenderizer can be made out of virtually any object, there are three types manufactured specifically for tenderizing meat.
Meat tenderizer refers to a powdered naturally derived enzyme powder. The enzyme most commonly used is papain, which comes from papayas or bromelain, which comes from pineapples (a tropical fruit in the bromeliad family). Meat is sprinkled with the powder, and the enzymes help to break down the meat fibers.
