As a guy who bought a whole cow, I'm asked a lot how to cook this-or-that cut of beef.
Of course I'm happy to share whatever knowledge I've gained, but I also thought it would be useful to build something to get those just entering the kitchen started off on the right foot.
To that end, I've built a series of very brief top line summaries of all the beef primals. They should at least get you started if you have a question about a particular cut.
You can find them at the top of this page, under the menu "About Beef."
Soon, I will be adding a section on barbecue, as well.
Finally, I've also included a section on how to actually go about buying a grass fed steer, should you be so inclined.
I hope you find them helpful.
