I tend to agree with the temp/technique that I used causing the toughness. Since the Wiffy wanted 3 bites to eat with her Baked Russet I did cook it longer per side than normal and I gave her the tenderest cut from the Steak also. Thanks for the illustration, Chef Sir. :tup: :salut:

OUP, I found if you put Kosher salt on your steaks for 1 hour before cooking it helps with the tenderness. You just wash off the salt with water , pat dry and add your steak seasoning before cooking. I also add some olive oil before I add the steak seasoning. Plate looks good!
How bout some more beans Mr.Taggert? I'd say you've had enough!

I've know many people use kiwi as tenderizer. Place slices of kiwi in a tray and put the steak on top of them. Lay another layer of kiwi slices on top and let rest for a few hours. Don't leave overnight unless you want meatslush!! Pat dry and proceed as usual.

Of course it's too late if you discover it after the steak is cooked. Useful if you have a batch of steaks you know isn't tender.

Pineapple works the same, but not as effective.

Very interesting, Joe, here's what I googled and found:

Some fruits, like kiwi, pineapple, and papaya, contain
enzymes that break down the collagen in meat, making it much more tender.
Redditor DaytonFlyers suggests peeling and mashing a kiwi fruit, then spreading
the pulp over the surface of the meat. After about fifteen minutes,
it will be significantly more tender.

Yes Sir, OUP!

The steak looks great, and the sides are right with that!

Well done! :cheers:

I'm happy to learn new stuff and strongly believe that anyone not willing to learn is definitely willing to fail. :cheers:
