SEATTLE -- In my continued search to save you time and money, I happily expose a restaurant food secret today. If you've ever wondered why that piece of meat is so much more tender when you pay $35 in a restaurant vs $12 at home, I have a deal for you!
It starts with an age old technique known as "jaccarding" a razor sharp series of blades that simultaneously cuts through the connective tissues that can make meat tough. As the tiny heat channels are created during that "jaccarding", marinades and seasoning penetrate faster and cooking time is significantly reduced.
For the first time, in a while, "The Jaccard Supertedermatic" that's in use at restaurants throughout our region is under $20. I've seen stores charge double for this bad boy. The best part: you can now buy lower grade cuts of meat, tenderize them and achieve that filet mignon texture.
I'm pairing my "Frugal Food Friday" deal pick for today with two other great deals on BBQ Sauce and the best dry rubs we've ever tasted.
