How to butcher a Cow


See the craft of the butcher in action! Jason Yang, butcher at Fleishers Craft Butchery, breaks down half a cow into all the cuts you would see at your local butcher shop.

There are four sections Yang moves through:
1. ROUND: bottom round roast beef, eye round roast beef, sirloin tip steak, london broil steak, shank (osso buco)

2. LOIN: sirloin steak, tenderloin steak, flank steak, filet mignon, New York strip steak

3. RIB: skirt steak, ribeye steak

4. CHUCK: brisket, ranch steak, denver steak, chuck steak or roast, flat iron steak
