Isn’t that simple?
Besides being a natural deodorizer, coffee grounds can be made into a meat tenderizer. Now, this is a hack for home cooks.
Did you know that coffee grounds can be added into any dry-rub recipes to be a meat tenderizer?
As meat contains muscle fibers and proteins which can make meat tough to consume, tenderizing allows those muscle fibers to be broken down. This results in a softer, flavourful meat and works particularly well with smoky foods, barbecued meat and chili.
Coffee contains natural acids and enzymes, making it especially effective at tenderizing meat. It can also replicate tannins in wine, which allows the flavor of the meat to be amplified and develop a much desired “umaminess”.
Simply add your used coffee grounds to your favourite dry-rub recipe and apply the rub to the meat at least 2 hours before cooking.
This will make you have tender, flavourful meat that will make your loved ones ask for an additional serving!
Now, the last hack is for green fingers. Do you know that used coffee grounds can be made into fertilizers?
Now that you know the hacks to repurpose your used coffee grounds, you can get by with the environmentally friendly lifestyle while having your daily cup of coffee.
