Techniques » Breaking Down Beef Into Cuts
Northeast Family Farms and John Stowell (with Ryan Larocque on chainsaw), bring you an informative and concise education about beef. Learn the anatomy of a cow, the cuts of meat, and their best uses. You'll know what to look for the next time you go shopping and you'll be able to talk-the-talk with the butcher.
