Will canned pineapple tenderize meat?
Unfortunately, the bromelain enzyme found in fresh pineapple is destroyed in the canning process, which is a natural meat tenderizer. For that reason, I do not recommend using canned pineapple in this recipe. However, if that is all that you have on hand, you certainly can use it.
Does Pineapple reduce belly fat?
In addition to being a natural meat tenderizer, bromelain has anti-inflammatory properties which can shrink belly fat!

- 1 T. coconut oil
- 1 lb. beef flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain
- 2½ c. pineapple chunks
- 3 T. tamari or coconut aminos
- 3 scallions, sliced thin
- Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Heat the coconut oil in a large high-sided skillet or wok over high heat. Add the beef and pineapple and season with a small pinch of salt and black pepper, if desired.
Stir-fry the beef and pineapple over high heat until the beef is cooked through and the pineapple develops a slight golden color, approximately 2-3 minutes.
Add the tamari or coconut aminos and stir-fry for another 1-2 minutes, or just until the mixture is warm and bubbly. Taste and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
Remove from heat and stir in the scallions. Transfer to individual plates and serve immediately. Enjoy!
