Now that you know how to butcher a pig, here’s how to tackle a cow.
Jason Yang, butcher at Fleishers Craft Butchery, breaks down half a cow into all the cuts you would see at your local butcher shop. There are four sections Yang moves through: 1. ROUND: bottom round roast beef, eye round roast beef, sirloin tip steak, london broil steak, shank (osso buco) 2. LOIN: sirloin steak, tenderloin steak, flank steak, filet mignon, New York strip steak 3. RIB: skirt steak, ribeye steak 4. CHUCK: brisket, ranch steak, denver steak, chuck steak or roast, flat iron steak
