Code: Topside B002
A premium topside joint. The loosely attached muscle (gracilis) is removed and only the middle and corner cut of the topside is used. This results in no gristle in the middle of the joint and the cooked slices will not fall apart. 5 mm thick basting fat is added to any lean surface part on top of the joint.
Remove the loosely attached muscle (gracilis) by cutting along the natural seam.
