My friend M. introduces me to a marvelous time saving cooking gadget this weekend.
The Vacu Vin Instant Marinater marinates and tenderizes meat, poultry and fish in minutes instead of hours. Fantastic for a busy girl like me! My friend is very happy with the results.
The technique is built around creating a tiny vacuum in the bowl. The vacuum is believed to open up the pores and fibers of the meat. This reduces the time it takes for the marinade to flavor your meat, poultry or fish.
Contrary to the wine vacuum pump, you must only remove a small amount of air in the Instant Marinater bowl. I am planning to get my own because too often I do not make a recipe just because I cannot wait for the marinade resting time.
