Asian Marinated Grilled Teres Major Steak 

What is Teres Major Steak.

If you’ve never had Teres Major Steak, then you’re in for a treat. It’s a lean and affordable cut of meat with a tender texture and incredible flavor. The Teres Major muscle comes from the beef shoulder or chuck section of the cow. It can be referred to as the poor man’s Filet Mignon because it’s incredibly juicy and fork-tender. It’s extremely versatile and one of our favorite cuts of beef to prepare. Another name for the Teres Major Steak is the Petite Tender. It’s also called the Mock Tender, Bistro Tender, Bistro Filet, and Shoulder Tender. 


you can use 1-3 lbs of steak for this marinade recipe

  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger crushed or finely minced
  • 2 tablespoon green onion finely chopped


  1. In a medium-size bowl, combine the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, olive oil, brown sugar, garlic, red pepper flakes, ginger, and green onion. Whisk until mixed.

  2. Pour the marinade into a sealable bag with the Teres Major Steak and squeeze out all of the excess air.

  3. Marinate the beef for 2-4 hours in the refrigerator.

  4. Remove the steaks from the refrigerator, shake off any excess marinade, and place them onto a clean plate.

  5. Preheat the grill to medium-high and cook 4-5 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches your desired level of doneness. Allow the steak tips to rest for a few minutes before serving.
