Braising steak is cut from a variety of muscles which needs slow, moist cooking to keep it melt-in-the-mouth tender. Braising steak is usually sold in whole pieces but you can get your butcher to dice it up for you or do it yourself at home.

How Can I Cook It?

Braising steak is ideal for braising and slow-cooking. Do not cook it like you would a normal steak, as it will not be as flavoursome and tender as it can be when properly cooked.

What Else Could I Use?

If you're looking for a smaller cut to braise or cook slowly, try some diced or cubed beef, or alternatively try chuck steak or shin of beef.
