With so many different cuts of beef – from the 7-bone chuck roast to the tri-tip roast – figuring out the best way to cook a piece of beef can be confusing. This chart from the Cattlemen’s Beef Board and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association can help.
The graphic groups cuts of beef by the part of the cow the meat comes from and also recommends the best way(s) to cook them. Some are quite obvious, such as slow cooking stew meat, but it’s a handy reference for lesser-known cuts, such as 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 we shared previously, this poster showcases a wide variety of beef cuts you can get from your grocery or local butcher. For optimum viewing, we recommend either opening the image file in a separate tab or printing it out.
