This Video Is Everything You Need To Know About Steak Cuts

You've probably seen a number of names and descriptions for various cuts of beef at the supermarket or at your favourite restaurant. This video from Pat LaFrieda explains every "steak" you'll likely see, where they come from, what they look like and what they're good for, in one fell swoop.

LaFrieda explains where you'll find the various cuts of beef and what you can use them for at home. Perhaps most useful is that you get to see what they look like, so you'll be able to identify them easily at the supermarket.
