I usually get beef cubes. It is already chopped up into little cubes.

Is it one of those stews you cook for a long time? If so you’ll need braising beef as it has got fat in it, but because it’s been cooked for a long time it will create a melt in the mouth tender piece of meat.

@trugem: I get the same thing. There is usually low, to no, fat one the meat and it cooks down really tender.

I usually just buy the cheapish “stew” meat out of the meat case. Since the stew cooks for a while, the usually tougher meat will cook down and be tender.
