Cook's Tip: Beef Bottom Round (Western Griller) Steaks are cut from the Beef Outside Round (Flat) (IMPS/NAMP 171B). Following the natural seam, the triangular shaped muscle is removed and is usually sold as pot roast. The remaining muscle is completely trimmed and then cut across the grain into 3/4, 1, or 1-1/4-inch thick steaks. These larger steaks are then cut in half for more manageable family-size steaks. Steaks cut 3/4 inch thick average 10 ounces. Steaks cut 1 inch thick average 12 to 16 ounces. Steaks cut 1-1/4 inches thick average 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pounds.
