Ok all here is another culinary myth
Many people marinate less tender cuts of meat with wine or another acid such as citrus or some other form to help tenderize the meat. Acid does not tenderize but it will give nice flavor to the food. The best way to tenderize a less tender cut of meat is through long, slow cooking. If you don't believe me, try it for yourself. In the near future I will do a posting just on marinades and tenderizing.
