Scientists have found the eating quality of tough cuts of meat like shank, silverside and chuck steak can be improved using shockwave technology. The technology – hydrodynamic pressure processing – is the application of mechanical pressure pulses in a large water tank. The tenderisation process is instant. CSIRO research leader for food transformation Dr Roman … Continue reading Shockwave technology tenderises meat and improves cheaper cuts
