Topside.

This extremely lean cut comes from the long inner muscle of the hind leg and is at its best when diced for slow cooking or roasted.

A topside roast may not be as tender as some of the other roast cuts, but when thinly sliced it’s particularly delicious. And although often sold as topside steaks, it’s best diced and slowly cooked so the meat becomes more tender.
