How to Carve Roast Beef

The way you carve roast beef can affect how chewy the slices are. The secret to carving tender slices of roast beef is the grain - the direction of the string-like fibers of the beef. Find the grain of the roast and cut against (across) it with a slicing knife or chef's knife. You'll get perfect slices every time.
