Bottom Round Steak is an affordable, leaner cut of beef derived from the rump area of a beef animal. It is inherently tough because it contains muscles are that heavily utilized by the animal, so careful cookery methods are required to improve tenderness. Try using this cut for braises or slow- or pressure-cooking recipes.
