This video has been viewed over 6,400 views on YouTube!  I have gotten quite a few comments, too.  Some viewers adamantly insist that this method works, we just "did it wrong".  I am sticking to my guns on this one!  You cannot tenderize meat from the outside in!  There is no science that supports this notion, and even the food-guru Alton Brown asserts this fact.  If you want a tender, juicy steak, then buy a good one!  The marbling of fat and the location of the muscle determine tenderness.  So use the tougher cuts of meat for braising and stewing, and spend some $$$ when buying steaks to grill or broil!
