I bought a large bag of beef tendon a few days ago and simmered half of it. No, I cleaned the refrigerator and showed the other half. Although the refrigerator is good, it is not suitable to store food for a long time. After all, the longer it is stored, the more moisture and nutrients of the food will be lost.

Beef tendon is the ligament of cattle, which does not contain meat fiber, so there is no need to worry about nutrient loss when soaking in water, so it can be thawed directly by brewing it in cold water.

Although the beef tendon is delicious, the stewing time is indeed not short. If it weren't for the beautiful iron pot, I would really press it with a pressure cooker. Thinking of eating pure beef tendon, it is more nutritious than adding a few more vegetables. Stewing this pot, the more ingredients, the more options, and the family can eat whatever they want. Use an iron pot to stew vegetables, the lid is easy to handle, and the stewing time is easy to control, and the stew is served directly to the table. At this point, the pressure cooker is a bit cumbersome, because the pressure in the pan must be completely released before the lid can be opened; if you put the dish to stew in two more times, it feels that the operation is not so smooth.

Of course, the pressure cooker is especially suitable for people who have not been cooking for a long time, or those who are anxious to eat. As for what pot to use, figure it out for yourself!

Beef tendon actually doesn't have much nutrition. Its main component is collagen, which is a very low-quality protein, and it will not turn into collagen on your little face just because you eat it. I often see in many articles that eating beef tendon and pigskin and trotters can beautify. In fact, this is a rumor. This kind of collagen is just as ordinary protein and absorbed by the body. Beauty and beauty are just misinformation.

People like it because of its waxy or Q taste. Let me make a long story short, people rely on food as their heaven, and only when they are full can they have the energy to do things.
