With so many different cuts of beef, figuring out the best way to cook it can be confusing. This chart from the Cattlemen’s Beef Board and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association can help.
The chart groups cuts of beef by the part of the cow the meat comes from and also recommends the best way to cook them. Some are quite obvious, such as slow cooking stew meat, but it’s a handy reference for lesser-known cuts, like the coulotte roast or sirloin bavette. You’ll also see at a glance which cuts of beef are lean and which should be marinated before cooking. Although not as nice looking as this chart, this poster, showcases a wide variety of beef cuts you can get from your grocery or local butcher.
