2. Crazy for Cuts

There are eight main types of beef cuts; rib, round, chuck, flank, short plate, loin, brisket, & shank. The quality of the cut is higher the closer they are to the center of the cow. This makes the two center-most sections, the loin, and rib, the most delicious and also the most expensive. Cuts like filet mignon and rib eye come from these two sections.
