I was originally going to just ask about Accent, which I know is just MSG. When I was growing up, I remember my parents tenderizing tough cuts with this stuff, but I know the recent buzz has not been good. Is there something else one can use that works as well (Adolph's meat tenderizer?)
Seeing all the sweet potato recipes posted got me thinking about how lazy I am when it comes to peeling potatoes. Are canned sweet potatoes unacceptable for most of these recipes?
