Round steak

Round steak

A round steak is a steak from the round section of a steer or heifer, and may be known as a "rump steak" in the United Kingdom. Specifically, a round steak is the eye round, bottom round, and top round still connected together. This is a lean cut and it is moderately tough. Lack of fat and marbling makes round dry out when cooked with dry-heat cooking methods like roasting or grilling. Round steak is commonly prepared with slow moist-heat methods including braising to tenderize the meat and maintain moisture. The cut is often sliced thin, then dried or smoked at low temperature to make jerky.

Round steak is also used to make a type of ground beef called ground round; this is also the name of a U.S. restaurant chain, Ground Round.
