I picked up this pair of Meat Claws recently and couldn’t wait to try them out! I am a sucker for kitchen gadgets, and the package promised that they would “shred meat easily.” Look at those stainless steel talons!
I’ve had a pork shoulder roast in the Crock-Pot all day in preparation for making taquitos for dinner tonight….
The roast had reached that starting-to-fall-apart stage, so I put on my new claws.
Look at THIS! I held up both hands and asked my boys, “Who do I look like?” Of course, they answered “Wolverine!” Don’t you want to feel like Wolverine in the kitchen? (“Freddy Kruger” would also have been an acceptable answer, but my sons are a bit too young to have knowledge of the “Nightmare on Elm Street” series…)
I have to say, these meat claws make shredding even a large roast simple. I tore the roast into shreds in about thirty seconds — no lie. Using these makes this task very fast! I usually use two forks to shred a roast, but this beats that method hands-down.
Done! Look at that. I can’t believe how quickly I tore through the roast — and how oddly satisfying it was to mimic a grizzly bear ripping through meat. These meat claws are definitely my new favorite kitchen tool!
