I've had my share of tough tri tips in the past and this device looks interesting. I've always been told never to pierce meat but heck with that. I can use something like this. Thanks Ross!

roadfix, the "no piercing" rule applies to cooked or cooking meats. It's OK to pierce raw meats before cooking. I have a similar tool I use on flank steak when I grill it or stuff and roll it.

When Daddy had the meat market he'd run a flank steak once through the big meat tenderizer when requested. Those were the old days when a butcher was behind the counter, and actually served people. This tool will be the next best thing, and flank steaks are so flavorful.

I've had this one for several years now (bought it at Cabela's in Sidney Nebraska the first time I went there, some 15 years ago). I use it on most cheaper beef cuts.

Thanks! I ordered one similar on Amazon this morning.
I can, now, still destroy (overly well done) my wife's meat and keep it tender.....LOL

Ok, the man in the brown truck and brown shorts just delivered my new tenderizer (among other goodies). I'll play with it tonight!

I have a question about this tool. Is it safe to use this tenderizer for hot and fast type grilling? I'm concerned about surface bacteria on a near room temp steak being carried into the meat which is only cooked to rare or medium rare.
