Bison Teres Major Family Pack (5-6 lbs)
Sustainably Raised Free Range Grass Fed Bison
Physical Description: The bison teres major, also known as chuck tender or bistro tender, is an exceptional cut that originates from the shoulder of the bison. It is renowned for its incredible tenderness, often compared to the bison tenderloin filet. This fantastic deal includes 6 tear-drop shaped pieces of Teres Major, each weighing about 1 lb, making for a stunning presentation.
Cooking: To prepare teres major, it is best to follow similar cooking methods as our other steaks. Due to its leanness, teres major cooks quickly. For the ultimate dining experience, it is recommended to remove the silver skin before cooking, just like with a tenderloin. You can gently work the tip of a sharp boning knife under the silverskin and use a slight upward sawing motion to cut towards the end of the silverskin, removing it without taking off too much of the underlying meat. For optimal results, pan sear on medium-high heat until it reaches the recommended internal temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
Nutrition Information: Grass fed bison is a superior protein source compared to other common meat sources. Bison contains 766% more vitamin B-12 per serving than chicken, 26% more iron than beef - a mineral essential for brain and muscle function - and 98% fewer calories than beef. It also boasts the highest amount of Omega 3's among all meat sources, and a whopping 28 grams of protein per serving. Furthermore, bison contains high amounts of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), a fatty acid known to provide various health benefits.
Farming Practices: At Beck & Bulow, we take pride in sourcing our bison from ranchers who raise their herds on open ranges in the United States, as well as from our own ranch here in New Mexico. We place a strong emphasis on sourcing bison that is grass-fed, free-range, and never administered antibiotics, steroids, or growth hormones. Our bison are raised in an environment that mimics their natural habitat, allowing them to roam and graze freely on the open plains. This contributes to their excellent health and superior quality of meat. We take great care in sourcing bison from ethical and sustainable sources that prioritize the welfare of the animals and the environment. Each piece of high quality meat is cut and trimmed by hand with exceptional precision. Additionally, we work directly with farmers and ranchers to ensure that our bison meet the highest standards of quality and flavor all of which contribute to our reputation as one of the best places to buy meat online.
