Kiwifruit 'Marinade'

Submitted by JAD 20 July 2011

Not many people realise that kiwifruit are a wonderful tenderiser.  If you have some over ripe kiwifruit use them in a marinade instead of throwing them away.

They transform meat which can be tough or dry.

Strange but true!!



2 really ripe kiwifruit

2 steaks  or

2 chicken breasts  or

2 pork chops

salt and pepper

4 tbsp olive oil


Peel the kiwifruit and mash up with a fork (removing the white centre if it is still hard and won't mash) in a bowl.  Add a good grinding of pepper and salt and the olive oil and mix.

Spread on both sides of your meat and pop in a plastic container in the fridge turning occasionally.  This works best if left overnight but a couple of hours will make a difference.

Remove from the fridge about half an hour before you want to cook them and then just cook on a griddle or under a grill as per usual.
