American Wagyu Teres Major Steak
The Juicy Details
If you're like most people, you've probably never heard of this cut, and that's OK. Think of our American Wagyu Teres Major cut, from the shoulder, as that hidden gem of a restaurant or cocktail lounge you love because it feels like it's your little secret. Despite being adored by in-the-know meat lovers, you don't find Wagyu Teres Major steaks often because they require the artistry of a skilled butcher to prepare.
Lucky for you, the Good Silver team couldn't resist sharing this beauty. Our American Wagyu Teres Major steak is an exceptionally rich and extraordinarily tender cut. Commonly compared to tenderloin, the Teres Major is packed with more flavor because of the extensive marbling it has. And when it comes to melt-in-your-mouth tenderness, only a filet mignon has bragging rights.
One of the most appealing aspects of our American Wagyu Teres Major is its versatility. It's a wonderful option for grilling, roasting, and pan searing. Follow these steps to prepare your meal:
- Generously coat your American Wagyu Teres Major with salt and pepper. Because this cut has such a naturally robust beef flavor, salt and pepper is all you need to let it be the star of your meal.
- If cooking in a cast iron pan or on a hot grill, simply sear on each side for 2–3 minutes minutes for a recommended medium-rare doneness. If roasting, cook your Wagyu Teres Major in an oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until it reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees.
- After letting it rest for a few minutes, all that's left to do is slice and savor.
Bring your meal together with a side of roasted or grilled asparagus or brussels sprouts finished with a squeeze of lemon juice to really bring your tastebuds alive. Classics like potatoes, a wedge salad, or creamed spinach are always crowd-pleasers with our American Wagyu Teres Major cuts. Because of the meaty flavor profile, you can pair it perfectly with a glass of cabernet, malbec, or syrah. Not a fan of wine? Treat yourself to the old-school steakhouse experience with your favorite whiskey on the rocks, martini, or beer. Now all that’s left to do is sip, slice, and savor.
