A GUIDE TO CUTS OF BEEF
Here is a quick guide to cuts of beef to help you buy the right cut of beef for the right job.
There are 8 primal cuts of beef which include, Chuck, Rib, Loin (short loin and sirloin), Round, Flank, Plate (or Short Plate), Brisket and Shank. These primal cuts are then broken down into sub-primal cuts, including specific steaks and chops.
The most tender cuts of beef, like the rib and tenderloin, are the ones farthest from the horn and hoof. The toughest areas of the animal are the shoulder and leg muscles because they are worked the most.

Dry-Aging vs. Wet-Aging
So what is the difference between Dry-Aging and Wet-Aging?
- Dry-Aging is the industry’s oldest proven method for increasing flavor and naturally tenderizing meat. During the dry-aging process, moisture is drawn out of the meat in our state-of-the-art Dry-Aging Room (one of the few in the industry). This causes the beef flavor to become more concentrated and more flavorful. In addition, the aging process causes the beef’s natural enzymes to break down the connective tissue in the meat, making it more tender.
- Wet-Aging is aging meat in a vacuum-sealed plastic bag to prevent evaporation from taking place. Since the meat is packed in its own juices the enzymes will break down the connective tissues and make it more tender. However, because there there is no fluid loss (as there is in the dry-aging process), the flavor is not as robust as it is with dry-aging.
