Braising steak*, as the name suggests, requires long, slow and gentle cooking. Braising steak is naturally lean, butchered from the chuck section of the forequarter. Braising steak, also known as casserole steak, makes for the perfect beginnings of many a stew, casserole, pie or pudding. We cut as whole steaks, perfect for a slow braise but may also be diced for hearty recipes requiring tender, succulent chunks of beef.
Chef George Ryle inspires:
"Braising in ale is a great place to start here, brown lardons and then sweat carrots, onions and leeks. Add the steaks, plus a bottle of traditional ale and a splash of stock and simmer very faintly until the meat is tender and the sauce is thickened. This would be a great time to shape some suet dumplings, scatter them over the top of the stew and bake in the oven. Buttered cabbage with a few healthy twists of black pepper on the side to accompany. Alternatively, dice the steaks into large chunks and embark on the culinary adventure that is a beef and oyster pie. Beef, mushrooms and a little Guinness provide a base with oysters and their juices added before being encased in pastry and baked to a golden crunch. It really is something to behold the salt and minerality of the oyster complementing the beef in a way that you might not expect."
