Tender Choice pork with "proprietary marinade"

ttoommyy | Mar 3, 2010 09:15 AM

I live in NJ and the local ShopRite supermarket has started carrying Tender Choice pork loin, chops, etc., which contain some kind of "proprietary marinade" which I believe is a saline solution they inject the meat with. Why oh why would they do this??? (I know the reason why: dry, lean pork, etc., but really...why???) I am so upset that almost all of the pork they are carrying is from this brand now. I used to be able to get pretty good pork at ShopRite, but now I will not by this stuff. What a shame.
