How to velvet a budget cut of meat to make it tender

Want to know how to turn a budget chewy cut of beef into a tender fall apart.

Choice start out by identifying which way the grain of your meat is running using a sharp knife, slice your beef into thin stir fry strips, trim off any excess fat or hard sinew.

Budget types of beef that are great for velveting are round brisket, blade, top side or pre-cut stir fry strips from the supermarket.

But other proteins like lamb pork and chicken also work. Coat with two teaspoons of bi-carb soda combine well and let it sit for 30 minutes, rinse well and then pat dry before proceeding with the recipe.
