Braising steak and chuck steak are both from the forequarter or shoulder area of the animal. This area of muscle is one of the hardest working and so the meat benefits from longer cooking times to avoid toughness. Braising steak is the leaner of the two cuts and so requires less cooking time than chuck steak.

Cooking / Recipes
Braising is a process by which the meat is first sautéed or seared at a high temperature, both to colour the meat and intensify the flavour. It is then cooked for a longer period in a covered pot at a lower temperature in a stock or other liquid. Braising steak is therefore typically used in casseroles and stews which are cooked in the oven or in a slow cooker for over an hour to tenderise the meat. The sauce takes on the flavours of the beef during cooking and ensures that the meat doesn’t dry out during the cooking process.
