Please help identify this beef cut I want to find

Recommended Posts

I know this will sound crazy, but they serve "roast beef" once a week at the rehab center that my mom is in right now and it is amazingly tasty and tender.  I'm quite sure it is NOT an expensive cut of meat.  But it isn't chuck or eye of round.  It is usually cooked medium-well and sliced fairly thin.  It has a thin layer of fat on one side.  Any ideas?

It’s not a cheap roast but by no means the most expensive either.


That link doesn’t seem to work let me try another one. Here

Look at the chart of beef cuts and see if you can identify it

If not eye of round then perhaps top round (or more likely bottom round).

Most likely braised but perhaps cooked sous vide.

Looking at the chart, I'm thinking (like you) either top round or bottom round.  If I can find them, I'll do an experiment!  Thank you.
