Mock in the Crock
Mock Tender steak comes from the Chuck primal of an animal, and is sometimes referred to as Chuck Tender or Scotch Tender. We chose "Mock" because it rhymes with "Crock," and there are 1,000 reasons we love crock pots.
Just kidding. Mock Tender is the official name recognized by the USDA, and also how our butcher labels this cut, and whatever Dave says, goes.
