This cut of beef is becoming very popular and I love it, make sure to trim it if there is a membrane on the outside of it but once cooked and cut across the grain is a delicious piece of meat and easy and quick to prepare. This was a real crown pleaser so I hope the cut doesnt get too expensive as it’s popularity grows!
