Fantastic Valentine's Day Menu & CSN review!

My friend Marley over at CSN Stores recently asked me to do a review for them and I jumped at the chance. I had a fantastic melt-in-your-mouth chicken recipe at my cousin's house and she attributed it to her meat tenderizer.   I've been dying to get my own multi prong meat tenderizer with grill season on its way and this was the perfect opportunity.  I chose the Deni MT149 Meat Tenderizer with 49 stainless steel blades.
This was a fantastic choice.  Every piece of meat I have used this on whether it is beef, chicken or pork turns out fork tender and juicy.  I HIGHLY recommend this meat tenderizer to anyone who cooks!  Here is the most recent recipe we used it on ~ YUMMY~
GARLIC STEAK
Steak of choice (hubby choose T-bones)
2 cloves of garlic per steak, minced fine
1 tablespoon champagne vinegar per steak
1/2 tablespoon canola oil
sea salt
white pepper
  • Pierce each steak with a marinater.
  • Whisk together the garlic, oil, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place steak side by side of a large plate.
  • Pour marinade over top.
  • Turn steak and make sure each is well coated.
  • Cover and marinate overnight.
  • Take steak out of refrigerator an hour before grilling, turn several times making sure still well coated in marinade.
  • Firmly press garlic pieces into the steak.
  • Grilled to desired doneness - mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, medium rare....

Oh my gosh I cannot wait to get a GRILL!! We don't have one since moving, but as soon as the tax refund gets here, we're in business!! I love that tenderizer, how cool! Good to know that it works well also. I hope they ask me to do another review once I do the first one so I can get one next...hehe!!
