Intercity Custom Meats - The Petite Tender Beef Roast, also known as the Teres Major, Mock Tender or Shoulder Petite Tender, is a tender and lean roast. The teres major is a rare cut that is a small, specific muscle from within the chuck. You may be familiar with a chuck roast, but the teres major is much more tender, and requires expert butchery skills to extract.

This is a small roast, that is perfect for 2-3 servings. Our butchers carefully tie the roast with butcher twine for easy carving and a beautiful presentation. 

This is a specialty cut that is difficult to find at your local grocery stores so grab it while you can!

*Contents of the case are all frozen. All weights are approximate.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Thaw the roast in the packaging and under refrigeration. 
  2. When fully thawed, remove from the packaging and leave the string attached.
  3. Preheat your oven to 375 F.
  4. Lightly oil the roast and season with coarse salt and pepper, or your favourite spice blend.
  5. Transfer the roast to a baking dish or tray, preferably with a roasting rack to ensure more even cooking, and place on the middle rack of the preheated oven.
  6. Roast for approx. 25 to 35 minutes, until an instant read thermometer measures 130 F for a medium doneness. Cook more or less depending on your personal preference.
  7. When the roast is at the desired temperature, remove it from the oven, and loosely tent the roast with aluminum foil and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.
  8. Resting is important as it allows the juices to re-distribute throughout the roast, and when sliced those juices stay inside, instead of on your cutting board. It makes for a much nicer eating experience.
  9. After resting, cut away the string with scissors, and slice away.
For Added Flavour - Try the skillet-to-oven method 

In this method, steps 1-4 above stay the same. But instead of simply roasting in step 5, sear the roast on all sides first in an oiled cast iron skillet, for approx. 2 minutes per side on medium high heat, and then transfer the skillet to the oven. Roast following steps 6-9 above except cut the oven cooking time to about 20-25 minutes, or until desired temperature is reached.

This method provides a flavour boost by searing all sides creating more caramelization which in turn tastes a lot better.
