Round Steak

Share This Post

Round steak is a cut of beef that comes from the hindquarters of the animal, specifically from the round primal cut. It is a lean, flavorful but less tender cut of meat that is best cooked using moist heat methods or by mechanical tenderization to break down the connective tissue and make the meat more tender.

Round steak can come from various muscles within the round, including the top round, bottom round, and eye of round. It is a relatively affordable cut of beef, making it a popular choice for stews, roasts, and other slow-cooked dishes.

Because round steak is a lean cut of beef, it can be tough if not cooked properly. It is best cooked using moist heat methods such as braising, slow roasting, or in a slow cooker. This involves cooking the meat in a liquid, such as broth or wine, for several hours until the meat is tender and flavorful.

Round steak can also be tenderized using a meat mallet or a mechanical tenderizer, which punctures the meat to break up the tough connective tissues. After tenderizing, the steak can be pan-fried, broiled, or grilled to the desired level of doneness.

In summary, round steak is a cut of beef that comes from the hindquarters of the animal, specifically from the round primal cut. It is a lean, flavorful but less tender cut of meat that is best cooked using moist heat methods or by mechanical tenderization to break down the connective tissue and make the meat more tender. It is a relatively affordable cut of beef and is often used in stews, roasts, and other slow-cooked dishes.
