Pineapple, kiwi and papaya are all fabulous meat tenderizers. Most bottled powders are derived from pineapple cores in some fashion, but I personally think sticking to the original is always better. I don't own meat tenderizer since I view it as 'unsafe' and unnecessary, but I don't know any science to back me up. Depending on what you are tenderizing, plain yogurt, buttermilk, or leftover whey are also wonderful for tenderizing.

Yes, it's safe use meat tenderizer, which is powder form of the enzyme, Papain. In the amounts used for cooking it is safe. It's used in a wide variety of products, http://www.webmd.com/vitamins...

It is only unsafe in large dosages, for example supplements for pain and inflammation.

If you would rather not chance it, vinegar is a good tenderizer as is baking soda.
