Here in Switzerland, it's often sold as Leistenfleisch, sadly most frequently already chopped into little pieces. I actually found a halfway-big chunk at Migros the other day, freed it of the gristle down the middle and then vacuum-packed it and let it age a week past the Swiss expiration date. Oh, it was fantastic grilled.

It's telling that if you google "leistenfleisch", the hits are all "Can I eat this?!?" and "Is this safe to feed to my cat?".
But it is Leistenfleisch a specific cut, rather than just a name for meat with a particular use in mind?

My colleague thinks that Federstück is the correct name.

Many of the tougher cuts of beef are scorned by naive consumers but loved by those who know what to do with them.
