About mock tender steak
When you're looking for an economical, flavorful cut of meat to make into stews, to simmer in succulent sauces, or to grill, consider mock tender steak. This cut of meat comes from the chuck primal area of the shoulder blade of a cow or steer. The mock tender steak comes from an area of active muscle groups in the cow's back that makes the meat a bit tough and lean, but with proper cooking, this flavorful cut of beef makes a tasty, nutritious meal that the whole family will enjoy.
Mock tender steak is chewy and has a rich beef flavor that works well when simmered with wine and fresh herbs, braised with a mushroom and onion sauce, or cut into cubes for a hearty vegetable and beef stew. The steaks resemble a tenderloin cut of meat, hence the name mock tender steak.
Mock tender steaks are fairly new to the consumer scene. In the past, butchers would sell whole chuck roasts for people to make large family dinners with. However, as the demand for smaller, affordable cuts of meat grows, butchers now break chuck roast down into smaller steaks for individuals, couples, and small families to use for stews or marinated grilled mock tender steaks.
