Here is an old west recipe for making tough beef tender:

1886 Daily Bee, Sacramento, California

Lay meat out smoothly and wipe it dry.  Take a coffee cup full of fine breadcrumbs, a little salt and pepper, a little powdered thyme or other sweet herb, and just enough milk to moisten to a stiff dressing.  Mix well and spread over the meat.  Roll it up and tie it up with twine.  Brown in salt pork fat, then put in half a pint of water.  Cover and cook.

The toughest meat is made tender and nutritious when cooked in this way.
