What kind of meat is used for beef stew with lima beans?

You’ll want a type of beef that is tender and will cook quickly. I use sirloin beef tips in this recipe. Beef tips are typically tender pieces of meat cut from larger roasts such as sirloin tenderloin. I sometimes buy a sirloin steak and cut it into bite size pieces, if I can’t find it pre cut. You’ll want to avoid tougher cuts of meat such as chuck or beef stew cubes, although you can still use it especially if you own a pressure cooker. Just keep in mind that it will take longer to cook.
