    Can anyone give me some advise on how to smoke this type of roast?  I've never even heard of this cut of meat. Any advise would be greatly helpful.  Thanks so much! Jan

    Beef Round Heel of Round RoastRound


    This area has many lean cuts of beef, which are best prepared with moist heat cooking methods. Many popular and economical roasts come from the Round. When cut into thin strips, steaks from this area can be used in stir-fry  recipes.

    This is the actual heel of round:


    End of Round, showing heel of round in the center, then over top of it are the remains of the bottom round, eye of round and top round.  Seam out those pieces of meat and what is left is the heel of round (above).


    Which of these are you referring to?  Or, if possible, post a Qview of it (pic).  Knowing exactly what cut it is will determine how to process it and how to cook it.

    The top picture is the actual heel of the round.  In the center, you see a rope of meat that is very sinewy; it is tough and is best stewed, not roasted.  Seam that out and save it for your next beef stew or soup.  The rest, you can tie a couple strings around it to hold it into a round shape and roast it.  It has flavorful meat, and some silver looking membrane that can be more difficult to chew, but roast it to 135° internal for best flavor!
