Watch a butcher break down a side of beef


Vegetarians and vegans, avert your eyes. But those of you who enjoy throwing a steak onto the grill will want to watch an excellent video from Bon Appétit magazine that explains every cut of steak

The 18-minute-long video features Jason Yang, of  Fleisher’s Craft Butchery, who breaks down a side of beef while explaining the various cuts including the oyster steak, filet mignon, skirt steak, brisket, and more. After watching the video, you’ll know the difference between chuck and round, understand how short ribs are made, and where the various steaks come from. 

Once you’ve seen the video, you may have a hankering for a thick, juicy steak. Try one of these recipes from the EYB Library:
