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.

FAQs About Mock Tender Steak

When choosing a mock tender steak, look for pieces that have bright-red flesh with a bit of fat. If you plan on grilling the mock tender steak, choose a cut-thick steak. You can get pre-cubed steaks for stews that make it convenient to place the meat into the stew.

Once you receive your mock tender steak, you can store the meat inside of the refrigerator for up to five days when stored in an air-tight plastic bag or container. To freeze mock tender steak, wrap it in plastic wrap and then a layer of aluminum foil and keep in the freezer for up to three months.

Worcestershire sauce contains many of the ingredients that make for a great tenderizing marinade. Worcestershire sauce has vinegar for acid, sugar to add a bit of sweetness, and because it's concentrated, the marinade can go deep into the flesh of the steak. Simply place the mock tender steaks in a plastic bag and pour 1/2 cup of Worcestershire sauce mixed with 1/4 cup of water over the steaks. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight and grill, fry, or simmer in a crockpot. Serve with your favorite side dishes.
