Additionally, you can check the spice aisle at your local supermarket for a bottle of meat tenderizer, and follow the directions on the bottle.

Most beef can be tenderized with a needle tenderizer. This devise causes the sinew in tougher cuts of meat to be cut and lets the meat relax. Also adding citrus to a marinade will often help. Lemon, Lime and Pineapple work well.
