Renal and renal diabetic food choices
- Most chemical meat tenderizers contain papain, an enzyme derived from papaya that helps breakdown the tough fibers in the meat. One well known brand of tenderizer is Adolph’s®. *Measure and limit the amount used because of the high-sodium content. Adolph’s original tenderizer contains 380 mg of sodium per 1/4 teaspoon; Adolph’s seasoned tenderizer contains 450 mg of sodium per 1/4 teaspoon. Reduce amount used if a smaller steak is prepared.
- You can use top round steak if flank is not available.
- Leftover portions can be used to top a salad, or wrapped into tortillas for an interesting wrap or fajita.
- If you are on a protein-restricted diet, adjust portion to your meal plan or consult your renal dietitian.
