In Chinese cooking,
corn flour is a must.
It is a wonderful tenderizer, especially useful for meat,
minus the chemical risk factor. It can be used in two ways:
One way is to add
directly to meat, usually 2 tbsp of corn flour to 500 g of meat. This
effectively seals the meat surface, thus preventing the loss of meat
juices from the
cut meat. In doing so, the juiciness and the succulence
of the meat is attained.
Another way is to make the corn flour
Usually 2 tbsp of corn flour is added to 1
cup of water, together with some seasoning like salt, pepper, tomato
puree or chili sauce.
The corn flour mixture
is then added to food; either meat, vegetable, or noodles; and bring to
boil and switch off the
fire immediately. This thickens and magically smoothens, giving the much
desired tenderizing effect.

added with salt.

function of meat and salt in salad preparation. Salad tastes delicious
