What type of meat do I have here? Morrisons just call it a roasting joint.

We don't often eat beef, so didn't splash out for anything fancy.

Does it not say topside, silverside or rump on it?
Nope. Morrisons seasonal approach seems to be to take any random cut of meat and call it a roasting joint.

I'm not very familiar with beef cuts, so wasn't that sure what to be looking for. I realise this is on the cheaper end of the spectrum.

First one I'd say Topside joint, I've been in the trade for knocking on close to 30 years.

You can tell by the fat on the top, as on a topside it doesn't cover the whole joint, you get around a 50/50 mix.
Going by the looks of yours, I'd say it's just under a half cut.
The second joint I could do with a better picture, possibly a silverside joint.

Edit - Again looks like a topside, just cut in an unusual fashion but seen it done before.

I think OP just took 2 pics of his meat, he doesn't have 2?
