What cut is top round?
Thereof, what is top round used for?
Cut from the inside of the hind leg, top round roast is the cut that’s most commonly used for deli roast beef. It’s also the same area that London broil is cut from. As far as cheap cuts of beef go, top round roast is relatively lean and flavorful since this muscle isn’t as heavily worked.
which is better top round or bottom round? The top round is very lean but tends to be more tender than the bottom round, and is often cut into steaks (which are sometimes labeled “London broil”). The bottom round, which is divided into a bottom round roast and a rump roast, is a bit tougher.
Accordingly, where does the top round cut come from?
A round steak is a beef steak from the “round“, the rear leg of the cow. The round is divided into cuts including the eye (of) round, bottom round, and top round, with or without the “round” bone (femur), and may include the knuckle (sirloin tip), depending on how the round is separated from the loin.
Is Top round the same as top sirloin?
Top Round Steak. A top round steak comes from the rump region. Top round steaks are more muscular, tougher and less marbled than sirloin cuts.
