Types of Meat

From a


"Have you ever bought meat and found one part tender and another chewy and muscular? That's because a cow has several types of meat. Various cuts of beef come from primal cuts, or the main pieces of meat taken from a cow..."

"The brisket is the pectoral muscle of the cow – the part of a cow's breast known for its tough and fatty texture."


"The short loin has some of the best primal cuts of meat. It's a cut found at the back of the animal or the hindquarters. This is where you get the famous strip steak."

Short Loin

"Sirloin is the upper middle section of the cow and behind the short loin. This cut runs from the 13th rib to the hip bone and the backbone to the flank or belly."


"The round is a primal beef cut from the hips, rump, hind legs, and knees. Round is an affordable cut of beef with a lot of connective tissue."
