Retail Beef Cuts Explained (INFOGRAPHIC)

Know your beef cuts!

It’s always a good idea to know your beef cuts so you know what to expect. Tenderness and cooking times vary from cut to cut, which is good to know when you’re buying steaks. It’s also important to know what a fair price per pound is and how market trends affect price. For example, this year filet mignon is one of the most affordable cuts available at Safeway. It’s not grass fed or as high of a quality as your local butcher, but it’s good to know. This graphic from the Beef council is a helpful visual way to understand cuts.
