    Introduction: Sales of proteolytic enzymes account for over 60% of total sales of these types of biochemical products, indicating the great importance of proteases as a group of industrial enzymes. Pineapple is a widely grown fruit in tropical and subtropical regions around the globe and is a rich source of stem and fruit proteolytic bromelains. Hence, it is important to find an economical and efficient way of using protease present in pineapple for industrial or household purposes. Materials and Methods: Assessment of collagen degradation activity of protease on lamb steak: 400 g of lamb steak were separated into four groups of 100 g each and were soaked in the prepared pineapple extract for different time intervals to assess the collagen degradation activity of bromelain in relation to time. Results: The protease activity of bromelain present in pineapple was found to be around 0.165 micromoles per ml. Bromelain extracted from pineapple was proved for its ability to break collagen bonds efficiently and acts in reducing the cooking time of lamb steak. Conclusion: This study focuses on one of the efficient applications of protease to reduce the consumption of fuel by reducing the cooking time of lamb steak.
