The Ross 501 meat tenderizer was the first in a series of food processing equipment innovations that reflected Bud Ross’ common-sense approach to engineering. His design enhancements often featured multiple benefits from a single idea – a trait that would become the signature of Ross-engineered equipment.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

In 1970, Henry M. “Bud” Ross was challenged to build a revolutionary machine to tenderize meat more effectively and efficiently. His Ross 501 Tenderizer automated the tenderizing process, using pressure-sensitive blades rather than traditional rigid needles. The 501 tenderized bone-in meats by making thirty-two unique T-shaped surgical incisions per square inch without distorting the product shape or degrading the meat quality. For the first time, meat processors and retailers were able to mechanically tenderize primal sections and cuts without having to remove the bone. The Ross bone-in tenderizer increased product values. In fact, it created new markets by allowing processors to break the age-old “cattle cycle” and tenderize the tougher, less expensive cuts of range-fed cattle to obtain the higher quality and prices of grain-fed beef.
