Kiwi Fruit

I was flipping through a magazine this morning and came across an article about Kiwi fruit being a great meat tenderizer. It has an enzyme that I cannot recall the name of that tenderizes the meat. Has anyone tried this before?

Me too Bruce, but I'd never heard of it being used as a tenderizer. Might give it a shot with some lime juice and marinade some steaks for fajitas or something.

Did you know kiwifruit could also be used as a natural meat tenderizer? That's because kiwifruit contains an enzyme called Actinidin. Just cut in half and rub kiwifruit over the meat, or peel and mash with a fork then spread it on the surface of the meat and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes or longer. The enzyme Actinidin also breaks down protein in dairy products. That's why when kiwifruit is combined with low fat ice cream, yogurt, or sour cream, it's best to serve and eat it right away. link
