This video has been viewed over 6,400 views times 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!
