Instructions:

1. To pound meat, start by covering the meat with heavy plastic wrap to avoid messy splatters.

2. Use the smooth side of a meat mallet to gently pound it to the desired thickness, being careful to keep the thickness even.

3. If you're without a meat mallet, you can use the bottom of a heavy saucepan or a heavy rolling pin.
