Thinly slicing tougher cuts of meat, such as beef chuck eye steak, flank steak and skirt steak, ensures tenderness. Tip: Pop the steak in the freezer for about 20 minutes before slicing--it should be firm but not frozen. Hold a chef's knife at a 45-degree angle to the meat and thinly cut across the grain.
