What cut of beef is best for a casserole? I’m confused over, Chuck, braiding steak and stewing beef.
Chuck, braising and stewing are all suitable for long slow cooking.
My own favourite cut for braising, where I live in East Anglia is called chuck and blade steak. In other regions it can be called shoulder, which is exactly where it is. If you want large pieces of meat rather than cubes, thick flank is suitable: actually, from the hindquarters and called round or flesh end in Scotland or bedpiece elsewhere. Beef skirt comes from below the diaphragm of the animal. It is however an excellent cut for braising and one end can even be grilled if scored across the grain and tenderised by marinating before cooking.
Stewing beef can come from the neck and cod. These are accorded some undignified titles such as sticking, or in Scotland gullet, or in the North vein or sloat!!
Also suitable for stewing is thin flan which is sometimes just called flank. Leg and shin beef also stew beautifully given enough time.
Thank you for your very comprehensive answer.
