Even cheap meat, which tends to be tough, becomes juicy thanks to the simmered and moist aburaage (fried tofu skin)!!! The aburaage also increases the volume of the meat.
Cheap meat does get rather tough... but my wallet says I have to work with that! So, I tried combining it with aburaage to make it juicy.
The meat becomes a little tender when you sprinkle sugar on it and leave it for a while.
