The other thing with steaks is to bring them up to room temperature for an hour before cooking. It's impossible to keep a steak warm whilst resting if it's cold inside after frying.
Yes, absolutely. A very cold steak will also contract violently in a hot pan, which tends to make it tougher and often makes it impossible to cook right through, for those who prefer it well-done.

Here was me thinking that that a "Pot Roast" was a roast cooked on top of the stove, slowly, in a pot. Any old big piece of tough meat was Pot Roasted.
That's what it's always been for me.

I haven't seen anything here that I think is what we Americans would call a "pot roast." I've attached a photo below.

Back in the US, I would usually make it in my slow-cooker so it turns out really tender.

The other day, I asked the butcher in Coop if he has anything like it (figuring he knows what I'm talking about since he lived in the US for quite some time). He tried to sell me a chunk of sirloin, which I don't think is the same thing. (I always think of sirloin as being really tough).

Does anyone know what I should look for -- or ask for -- in a Coop or Migros? I think it's from the shoulder area.



I know there's already a thread here for how to find roast beef, but I don't think a pot roast iss quite the same thing as what most Americans call "roast beef" (?)
What you want to ask for is a RINDERBRATEN also sometimes named Rinderschmorbraten.

You can buy Rinderbraten at most big Coop butcher sections. It means "beef roast" in english and is a cut of beef that must be cooked for several hours to be tender, best in juices.

You want to avoid Rindsfilet or Rindshuft, these are tender cuts of meat that are too high quality and expensive for slow, long cooking.
