Marinade it 

Almost all kinds of meat need to be marinated for it to perfectly absorb the flavours and to become tender and soft. In your marinade, use acidic ingredients like lemon juice, vinegar or buttermilk to add flavour and to effectively break down tough meat. 

Add salt

Even if you are not marinating the meat, adding salt to the meat before cooking it is essential. The salt helps draw out moisture from the meat and can help significantly in making it soft and reducing the toughness.

Cook at the right temperature

 

Every kind of meat has to be cooked at a certain temperature to achieve sheer perfection. Undercooked meat can be chewy while overcooked meat can be tough and dry. So do your research before cooking the meat or use an instant-read meat thermometer to measure the temperature.
