This Chart Shows the Best Cuts of Beef and Their Substitutions

Taste of Home Logo By Lauren Cahn, Lindsay D. Mattison of Taste of Home | Slide 1 of 12: Anything labeled "chuck" comes from the cow's shoulder area. All chuck is known for having a rich, beefy flavor, and most (but not all) cuts of chuck are lean and grow more tender with longer cooking. In other words—perfect for the Crock Pot! This includes any chuck labeled as "roast," which would be perfect for this Ultimate Pot Roast Recipe. Chuck Roast Substitutes:Sometimes, chuck roast is labeled as blade roast, 7-bone roast or arm roast. If you can't find any of options, try another uniformly-shaped, lean cut of beef like tri-tip roast, top round roast or bottom round roast (sometimes called rump roast). Print the substitution chart
