What's the beef cut with solid, thick bone?

I need a cut of beef with very specific requirements. I'm interested in bone first:

  1. It should have it medullary cavity approximately in the size of a small finger.
  2. It should have compact bone walls as thick as possible.
  3. It should be cut perpendicularly to the bone, in a way that does not create fracture.

Seasoning and cooking it to preserve bone strength may be a follow up question, but it is out of scope for now. Now I want to know:

What cut I should ask a butcher for?
