Pre-cut vs. Uncut Stew Meat

Stew meat can be purchased already cut into bite-sized pieces or you can cut it yourself. Check the price per pound for pre-cut stew meat, then compare it with the cost per pound of round or chuck steak or a roast. More than likely, whole cuts of beef are cheaper per pound.

Buy a roast and cut you own "stew meat" from a roast or steak. Wrap and freeze the rest to enjoy in another delicious beef dish.
