Choosing a Cut

Which cut is right for you?

Choosing the right cut of beef for your recipe is the first step to having a great beef meal.

Some cuts of beef are great for throwing on the barbecue for a sizzling treat in minutes while others respond much better to long, slow cooking to bring out the full flavours in a great casserole.
