Very best Beef Minimize
Challenging cuts with lots of connective tissue that would be like chewing shoe leather if you cooked it speedily in a pan are the ideal cuts to use.
Chuck: Chuck roast, shoulder steak, boneless chuck roast, chuck shoulder pot roast, chuck seven-bone pot roast, or beef chuck arm.
Brisket: Brisket comes from the nicely-exercised breast part of the cow, and this means it has a great deal of connective tissue.
Round: Rump roast or bottom round.
Slow cooking these cuts breaks the collagen down, tenderising the meat. The beef releases its juices into the broth, supplying your roast with outstanding flavour. Including flour or cornstarch turns that liquid gold into a scrumptious, thick gravy.
