The cow is a versatile creature, as you can use practically every part of the animal in some food capacity. Have you ever wondered, however, what it takes to get those immaculate cuts of beef?
Bon appetit created a video that follows butcher Jason Yang from Fleishers Craft Butchery as he breaks down every part of a cow, explaining exactly how each part is used.
He points out the most popular beef cuts that include brisket, rib eye, chuck eye, steals, and flat irons. To get to these cuts, Yang slices and hacks his way through four sections of the cow: Round, loin, rib, and chuck.
Check out the extremely informative video to see exactly where the beef from your local butcher comes from, and the amount of work it took to get you that perfect cut. While we’re fascinated with meat as well as the butchering process, this video was a little bittersweet after watching Netflix’s Okja.
