What you'll learn in this butchery class:

Do you not know your sirloin from your brisket? Did you know there’s a difference between inside skirt steak and outside skirt steak? Do you find yourself staring hopelessly at the meat case? Don’t worry!

In this demo class, the instructors will answer all your beefy questions as he takes you on a tour from nose (well really neck) to tail while breaking down a whole side of beef. In addition to going over all of the cuts that come off of a steer, we’ll talk about livestock agriculture by comparing small-scale farming with industrial commodity meat. You’ll also pick up tips on how to shop smart for meat in general as well as pointers on the ideal cooking methods for each cut mentioned.

Please wear a sweater; classes take place in our cutting room which is usually at about 60 degrees.

Breaking Beef: An In Depth Tour of the Steer
Reviewed by Allan L. on 1/12/2019
Great class. 2 suggestions: 1. At the show, the cow was in 3 pieces so it was sometimes hard to visualize where each part came from. Have a picture/chart of the cow, so that we can visualize where on the cow each cut is located. 2. It wasn't always which cut corresponded to typical cuts in a normal grocery store. They always referred to each cut by the specific names they assigned in their store, which were different from a typical store. For example, I wasn't clear where a typical chuck steak came from.
