This cut comes from the forequarter. The cuts from our oxen weigh an average of 8 kg. It is very tender, juicy meat. It is very good for making steaks, steak tartare, stews and roasts. For roasting, it is good if it has a good layer of fat, as it is a fat with superb quality and gives more flavour. You can also make cured beef (cecina) with it.
