It has been fifteen minutes and the #1 cup is very strongly smelly. The meat tenderizer is definitely working. The number 2 cup is the exact same as last time. the cup that is digesting the food faster is number 1 and that is good because it is reaching the blood stream. the food must be turned into a liquid before it enters the blood stream and the cup number 1 is getting the liquid into the bloodstream faster than number 2 cup.
