What Are the Different Cuts of Beef?

Primal cuts come from the main area of the animal and may be recognizable to you by name. For example, primal cuts include brisket, chuck, loin, ribs, round, flank, and sirloin.

These larger, primal cuts are then broken down into smaller specialized cuts such as filet mignon, rib eye and flank steak. Click here to read a recent article in Spruce Eats naming the sub-primal rib eye cut as the most popular steak in America.
