All good tenderizers and most everything else require the use of power tools. Hay crimpers work great for tenderizing steaks, just crank the pto speed down so they dont get too mushed

Beer is the secret ingredient of all bargain basement meat tenderizers.If you have a tough piece of meat,cook it and drink at least three beers before you eat it.

Papaya and pineapple are natural tenderizers.
For pork I like a mix of pineapple juice and orange juice. Put in a ziploc bag with meat for at least 2 hrs but no more than 8 otherwise the meat gets too tender. LOL

Vinegar & lime juice will also break down meat fibers. I've never used them straight for just tenderizing, instead I include vinegar/lime juice in any marinade recipe to add flavor & tenderization.

During WWII in the Pacific theater it was discovered that papaya makes an excellant poltice for burns.
It helps to remove the injured tissue and while it isn't a sterile thing-infections were never noted. The enzymes in it do not harm the new cells.
Tried it one time on a burn on my hand from hot grease-it worked great and was soothing.
My step Mom was on new Guinea for 3 years during the war and passed the tidbit on. If you try it-use fruit about halfway ripe. Stick it in a blender,dress loosely.
