Beef Cuts Guide

Flatiron Steak (Top Blade Steak)
Grill – Broil – Saute
The best of the chuck, the Flatiron steak is the second most tender cut behind the tenderloin. It combines the texture of the Tenderloin with the earthy flavor of the Top Sirloin and is becoming one of the most requested steaks in restaurants across the country.
The Denver Steak (Underblade Steak)
Marinate – Grill – Broil – Saute
The Denver Steak comes near the shoulder blade in the chuck. It is juicy, tender, and well marbled. It is very flavorful by itself, but is equally delicious when marinated before cooking.

Chuck Eye Steak
Marinate then Grill – Broil – Saute – Stir-fry 
These steaks are a great cost conscious alternative to the Ribeye, although slightly less tender and flavorful. They do very well when marinated before cooking. 

Chuck eye roast (Boneless Chuck Roll)
Marinate – Stir-fry – Braise – Roast 
One of the best roasts available. Slow, moist cooking makes this a great pot roast. It can be cut into kabab or stir-fry meat and marinated. 

Chuck Roast, Arm Roasts, Mock Tender, Blade Roasts
Braise – Roast 
For slow, moist cooking, nothing beats roasts from the chuck. They have a rich beefy flavor, ample fat and good texture. Because of this it stays moist when cooked for a long time whereas leaner cuts will dry out or get stringy. 

Ribeye (Bone out) or Rib Steal (Bone in)
Grill – Broil – Saute 
Ask any butcher what their favorite cut of meat is and you’ll undoubtedly hear the Ribeye. Great marbling gives the Ribeye its rich, beefy flavor and tender texture. Cut from the rib section, these tender steaks can be purchased bone-in or boneless. 

Standing Rib Roast (Prime Rib)
The Grand Champion of beef roasts. This is the Prime Rib you have seen carved at restaurants your entire life. This is best when roasted. 

Filet Mignon (Tenderloin)
Grill – Broil – Saute 
The most tender cut of meat. The Tenderloin is prized for its exceptional tenderness and subtle flavor. 

New York Strip (Top Loin)
Grill – Broil – Saute 
Also known as Strip Loin Steak and Kansas City Steak, the New York Strip is succulent, tender and abundantly flavorful. 

T-Bone Steak
Grill – Broil – Saute 
The classic grilling steak, T-bone is actually two lean, tender steaks in one: the New York Strip and Fillet Mignon separated by the t-shaped bone. If the diameter of the fillet portion is smaller than a golf ball, it is considered a T-Bone. 

Porterhouse Steak
Grill – Broil – Saute 
The name of this extremely popular steak comes from the days when it was served in public ale houses that also served a dark beer called porter. The porterhouse consists of both the tenderloin and the top loin and is similar to a T-Bone steak except its portion of the tenderloin is greater in diameter than a golf ball. 

Club Steak (Delmonico Steak)
Grill – Broil – Saute 
The Club steak occurs where the Ribeye meets the Porterhouse. It is the best of both worlds, tender and delicious. 

Sirloin Steak (Top Sirloin)
Marinate – Stir-fry – Grill – Broil – Saute 
Extremely flavorful and lean, this moderately tender cut offers a great value and versatility. A great choice for kabobs and stir-fry. 

Marinate – Stir-fry – Grill – Broil – Saute – Roast 
The Tri-Tip is a curved triangular muscle cut from the bottom sirloin that is arguably the tastiest cuts you can buy at such a reasonable price. It is lean, tender and boneless and can be prepared whole or cut into steaks. 

Top Round
This roast is the most tender part of the round; this great dollar stretcher can be prepared as pot roast or cut into thick steaks for braised dishes. 

Eye of Round
Braise – Roast 
The eye of round can be tough and dry if cooked improperly. It is most tender and flavorful when prepared in a slow cooker or braised. 

Rump Roast
This economically friendly cut has a firm texture, which lends itself to braising, to help tenderize it. It is a very popular choice for pot roasts. 

Brisket – Braise – Smoke 
Known for being Corned Beef or Texas Barbecue, brisket has deep, rich flavor. With long slow cooking it becomes tender and delicious. 

Skirt Steak
Brisket – Braise – Smoke 
Skirt steak has a deep, rich flavor that is often used for fajitas, but also makes a great stand-alone steak as long as you cut it across the grain. 

Short Ribs
Braise – Smoke 
When slow cooked there is no better cut for tender juicy comfort food. They can be served bone in or boneless, short or long. Perfect for the crock pot. 

Flank Steak
Grill – Broil 
This lean steak has a great flavor, and should be sliced thin against the grain for maximum tenderness. Traditionally used to make fajitas and classic London broil. 

Short Ribs
Braise – Smoke 
When slow cooked there is no better cut for tender juicy comfort food. They can be served bone in or boneless, short or long. Perfect for the crock pot.

They are the most well know beef breed in the world for good reason. And we have to say, they’re pretty darn handsome. And of course, all our beef is 100% grass fed with no antibiotics or hormones used, ever.
