Posted in They Invented What? by Jake Ward on July 23, 2008

U.S. Pat. No. 3,492,688:  Apparatus for tenderizing food.

JW Note:  Yes, dear readers, the term “HE” does stand for “high explosive”, and numeral “10”  in the figure refers to meat.

 

What is claimed is:

1. Apparatus for tenderizing an article of food comprising a container, a liquid filling said container, means positioning said articles of food within said liquid, explosive means, means positioning said explosive means beneath the surface of said liquid and adjacent to said article of food, and means for detonating said explosive means for generating a shock pressure wave within said liquid for tenderizing said article of food.
