This cut of meat is from the beef chuck , just opposite the blade on the top part of a 7 bone chuck steak. Being a less tender cut and very lean , it is best prepared using a moist heat type of cooking. Braising and pot roasting are two recommended types of cooking for this piece. Sliced, Browned and finished in sauce or gravy slowly is my best suggestion. A nice way to prepare would be to brown the slices and finish with garlic, sliced peppers and onions, in tomato sauce, slowly simmered, covered, until tender, like swiss steak or steak pizzaola. Marinating is always another altenative, but be sure to give it enough time to tenderize.
