Chopping an onion
Cut the onion it in half across the base (leaving a portion of root on each half - this will help keep the onion together while slicing), peel the onion and place cut side down. Make multiple cuts long ways from top to bottom but not through the root at the end. The more cuts, the finer the dice.
Cut of beef from the rear of the animal, used for boiling, stews, casseroles and mince.
