Extra Tenderized?

mtskeeter | Sep 1, 202108:38 AM     8

Has anyone had an experience with "extra tenderized" meat? I am assuming the tenderizing is done mechanically. Recently I caved and bought a package of cube steaks that were stickered with "extra tenderized" on the wrap. The meat was so 'tenderized' that it fell apart in my hands like ground beef. What a disaster. I ended up frying it up for use in a future ground beef recipe. No returns are allowed at our grocer, but I did get my $12.48 back for 4 'steaks' of garbage @ $6.98/lb. Shoulda -woulda -coulda done it myself with a good piece of round or sirloin and a little elbow grease! I'm interested in your comments on this.
