In this video, you will see Seth and Scott, the Bearded Butchers, break down a side of beef and lay the individual meat cuts out on a diagram explaining where every cut of beef comes from on the carcass. They also discuss the different types of beef cuts, such as steaks, roasts, trimmings, bones, and fat.
The video begins with Seth and Scott breaking a side of beef into the front and hindquarter, followed by laying the intact quarters together on the diagram to show you the beef carcass before they get started. Once that is complete, they show the viewer how to break down a side of beef step-by-step. As they work, they explain the different cuts of beef. Once the side of beef has been broken down, they lay the individual meat cuts out on a diagram of the carcass. This allows the viewer to see exactly where each cut comes from and how it is related to the other cuts.
The video also shows the total yield of meat from the carcass, which can vary depending on the size of the cow and the quality of the meat. The video provides you with a wealth of knowledge about the cuts of beef and how to buy beef in bulk. The video is also visually appealing, with clear and concise visuals that help you understand the butchering process. It's also a great resource for butchers and chefs who want to brush up on their skills.
