    I've never been a big steak eater, and recently tried cooking a few pieces.
    I find that a T-bone always seems to come out tender, extremely easy to

    However, I got some that's labeled "Beef Chuck Extra Lean CS Ribs boneless"
    and it reminds me of why I never liked steak as a kid. Much tougher to get
    through. How much of an improvement can you expect when tenderizing meat?

    I assume the reason some cuts are tougher than others is their proximity to
    a tendon attachment on the animal? Or no?

    Any suggestions re: the best way to tenderize?
