Scoter is a piece from the shoulder of the beef. It consists of a tender piece that can be grilled, like bavette steak, and a firmer, more fibrous piece that needs to be braised. As a fairly economical choice (the price is similar to a chuck roast), scoter is sold in supermarkets and butcher shops.
