Alternative Cuts: Knuckle

The knuckle, or beef tip, is one of three main parts of the round and is one of the most versatile cuts of beef. The trimmed tip is most commonly found in butcher shops.

Beef knuckle is a solid muscle group weighing 12 to 16 pounds that has had the tri-tip muscle removed. It lies at the top of the round just beyond the sirloin and is the muscle group just above the kneecap.

It can be cut into countless items – London Broil, in strips to use in Stroganoff, cubes for kabobs, roasts, etc.
