I learned this trick when we were selling our home: To make a stainless steel sink shine like a super star, squirt a small amount of baby oil in a clean sink. Spread it around with a dry paper towel and wipe clean. Then step back and enjoy your model home-quality kitchen.
Meat Tenderizer: 1/2 tsp. baking soda per pound of meat. When cooking with a tough cut of meat add the baking soda alone first. Use your fingers to rub it over the meat. Wait 20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly to remove any baking soda flavor before adding other marinade ingredients. Great to use for beef with broccoli recipe! :D
