The Chew: How To Buy Meat
To help you get the hang of the meat counter and how to make great meals without blowing your grocery budget, Michael Symon visited Dickson’s Farmstand Meats at Chelsea Market to get the scoop on every cut of meat. Plus, Michael made a Grilled Korean Style Strip Steak Recipe.
The Chew: Dickson’s Farmstand Meats Review
Dickson’s works only with small family farms near the store. They make all their own products, from ham and bacon to charcuterie.
The Chew showed how a cut of beef is broken down into the various portions. rom the hind quarter, the arm chuck, and the rib plate, they gleaned these cuts you may recognize:
- New York Strip – grill or pan fry
- Chuck Eye Roast – smoke or braise
- Top Round Roast – oven roast
Finding bone-in meat can add more flavor to your meal.
The Chew: Artisan Butcher Shops
Leaving fat on a roasted cut of meat can naturally baste during the cooking process. Tying a roast helps with cooking, because symmetrical shapes tend to cooking more evenly.
Do you buy meat from a butcher shop, or do you pick it up at the grocery store?
