The first thing to understand about beef cuts is that there are main cuts, and sub cuts of those areas that exist, for now, we’ll explore the main types of beef cuts.


Forequarter Steak Cuts

The Chuck – This is where you get your bone in chuck steaks, boneless steaks. This meat is also ground for burgers.

The Ribs – This is where you get your short ribs from. As well as Prime Rib Steak, and Rib Eye as well.

Brisket – This part of the cow offers meat that is used for barbecue, corned beef, and pastrami.

The foreshank – This type of meat can be found in stews and in soup. Because it is such a tough meat, it isn’t used for much else.

The Plate – This portion of the cow also offers meat for short ribs, while also serving the purpose for pot roasts and fajitas.

As you can see, there is quite a bit to know about the cuts of beef that you could order. This is just one-half of the cow that we got to talk about, so stay tuned to our next blog for more on beef cuts. Enjoy your time at the best restaurant in Billings, at  Montana Jack’s.
