Fun fact: The teres major is the second most tender cut on a steer, which is why some people refer to it as the mock tender or faux filet. It’s also inexpensive and a great value, making it a solid introductory steak for kids or even recovering vegetarians.
Cooking Instructions: Teres major cooks fast. Season it well with salt and you can either grill it or sear it in a hot skillet on both sides. Depending on how thick it is you may then transfer the skillet to a 300 degree oven for a few minutes. It’s never a bad idea to use a meat thermometer to cook a truly perfect steak; internal temperature is a better measure of doneness than time.
