“This is very simple, but flavorful. Using this technique I get chuck that is tender but not mushy. And you can cook it rare if you like (the "true carnivore" way lol). I think this works best for chuck, but you can try it with other cuts so long as they are not too thick. Prep time does not include marinating time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine soy sauce and red wine in the container in which you plan to marinate the roast.
  2. Dunk the roast in so it's moistened on both sides.
  3. Sprinkle half the meat tenderizer on one side of the roast.
  4. Prick the surface with a fork all over.
  5. Sprinkle oregano and garlic powder to taste.
  6. Turn the roast over in the marinade.
  7. Repeat the tenderizer and spices on the other side.
  8. Flip over again and let rest in the marinade.
  9. Let marinate at least overnight, turning at least once.
  10. Cook on the grill to desired doneness. Chuck will come out tender using this technique even if cooked a short amount of time.
  11. Slice across the grain and serve.
