You know the Porterhouse, NY Strip, and the Ribeye, but how about the Hanging tenders? Chuck eye roll? Or the Flat Iron steak? Establishing your repertoire of knowledge on beef cuts and how to properly prepare them, not only makes you a better chef but helps save you money, and who doesn’t like that? When butchered a cow is broken down into two sides. Each side of beef is then further broken down into what are known as the primal cuts. These consist of the chuck, rib, loin, and round. There are also the lesser primals which include, the shank, brisket, and plate. The ends of the animal do most of the work resulting in cuts that are chewier but are also more flavorful. Towards the middle, we start to see the cuts that are well-marbled with fat and more tender, thanks to a lack of exercise and use. Both contain some of the most well-loved steaks, and both contain lesser-known steaks that are saved for the butchers and chefs that know what they’re doing. Just because these cuts are used less often doesn’t translate into a sacrifice of taste or texture, instead, they open up a whole new range of options that take advantage of the other 1,800 pounds of beef most of us never experience.
