Beef Chuck:

Consisting of parts of the neck, shoulder blade and upper arm, beef chuck is a tough cut of meat with a good deal of connective tissue. This makes it a good choice for making braised dishes like beef stew or pot roast. Because of its fat content, beef chuck is also excellent for making ground beef.
