Leave the meat to 'rest' for 15-20 minutes after cooking so that the muscles relax and the juices seep back into the meat, making it tenderer and easier to carve.
Casserole and stewing
Cook slow on a low temperature.
Store fresh topside beef in the fridge. Fresh Beef is always dated, it is the last date we recommend for the use of the product, if being frozen always freeze before this day.
