Cuts of Beef Reference

Select the perfect cut next time you’re at the meat case!

Chuck: This large primal comes from the shoulder area and yields cuts known for their rich, beefy flavor. Features roasts ideal for slow-cooking as well as more tender, grill-ready cuts such as the Flat Iron Steak.
Loin: The area below the backbone is home to some of the most tender and popular cuts of beef, such as the Tenderloin, Strip Steak, T-Bone and Porterhouse Steaks. Loin cuts are great prepared on the grill or under a broiler.
Sirlon: The Sirloin is home to popular fabricated cuts but is first separated into the Top Sirloin Butt and Bottom Sirloin Butt. In the Top Sirlon you’ll find steaks great for grilling, while the Bottom Sirloin provides cuts like Tri-Tip and Sirloin Bavette, which are good for roasting or grilling.
Round: Home to lean, inexpensive cuts that come from the rump and hind legs. The muscles in this area are used for movement, so the beef is leaner and less tender. Often sold as roasts, steaks for marinating or Ground Beef.
Brisket: This the animal’s breast, so it can be tougher because it is used for movement. An ideal cut for cooking low and slow-on the barbecue or in a slow-cooker.
Rib: Situated under the front section of the backbone and used primarily for support. Popular cuts from the Rib include the rich, flavorful Ribeye Steak and the Prime Rib Roast.
Shank: A portion of the leg, which is used extensively for movement. As a result, it is typically cut into cross sections called Shank Cross-Cuts which are braised to make flavorful, fork-tender dishes such as Osso Buco.
Plate: The section right under the rib primal with a higher fat content. The Short Plate is a source of Short Ribs and Ground Beef. It’s also the home of the Skirt Steak—a thin, flavorful cut that’s best when marinated and seared over high heat.
Flank: Located below the Loin and home to the Flank Steak. Cuts from this area are lean, very flavorful, and best when braised, or marinated and grilled.
