Petite Tender Steak Recipe Instructions

100% Grass-Fed Petite Tender / Terres Major Steak

Slowly defrost overnight in the fridge. Remove from vacuum pack and place on the countertop for 30 minutes before cooking to reach room temperature. Trim off excessive silver skin as seen in the image. Season lightly with quality olive oil, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper.

100% Grass-Fed Petite Tender / Terres Major Steak

Due to the uneven thickness of the cut, you need to cook it slowly and make sure to turn it very often. 

100% Grass-Fed Petite Tender / Terres Major Steak

The cut is very lean, therefore you need to make sure it does not cook without oil. Add olive oil or quality butter if necessary. 

100% Grass-Fed Petite Tender / Terres Major Steak

Use a meat thermometer to measure the core temperature of the thickest part. We highly recommend medium-rare doneness for quality steaks. Once it has reached around 50 degrees Celsius (125 degrees Fahrenheit) - remove the steak and wrap it tightly into aluminum foil. Allow the steak to evenly cook on residual heat for 10 minutes.

100% Grass-Fed Petite Tender / Terres Major Steak

Unwrap and cut into slices against the grain as seen in the images. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and enjoy while warm.

Translated from Japanese: It’s my first time trying this meat part. It was refreshing and delicious. I don’t like greasy food, so it was easy to eat. I want to buy it again. I have never seen this part in the supermarket.
