Meat types and cuts
meatandeducation.
Module focus
Most people buy their meat in the form of cuts, joints or mince. Meat
is also bought ready prepared, e.g. sausages, ham, burgers,
kebabs.
Knowing where meat comes helps you know how to prepare, cook
and serve it.
This module is about the different cuts of beef, pork and lamb which
are available.
meatandeducation.
Introduction
Cuts of meat are prepared by butchers in shops or supermarkets to
meet the different needs of consumers.
A wide range of different cuts are available, giving greater choice and
variety.
Carcase meat is prepared into cuts, joints and mince to make it:
• convenient to buy in smaller amounts;
• convenient to buy in suitable portions sizes, e.g. chops, steaks;
• easier to prepare and quicker to cook;
• easier to store safely.
meatandeducation.
Meat today
Today the consumer is looking for meat that:
• can be used in different ways;
• is convenient to prepare;
• simple to store;
• easy to cook;
• is low in fat.
meatandeducation.
Where we buy meat
meatandeducation.
Meat today
• Boneless cuts (beef, pork and lamb) –
economical and suitable for quick and
easy methods of cooking, e.g. grilling.
• Boned and rolled joints of meat –
smaller joints to reduce cooking time
and making it easier to carve.
• Lean and extra lean cuts – trimmed
cuts of meat which are lower in fat.
meatandeducation.
Meat today
• Cubes of meat – sold cut into
cubes, ready for making stews,
kebabs and casseroles.
• Lean minced meat – meat is
trimmed of fat and minced.
• Thin strips – meat is pre-cut into
strips, suitable for quick cooking
methods, e.g. stir-frying.
meatandeducation.
Identifying cuts of meat
A carcase of beef, pork or lamb is
divided into different cuts – which may
vary according to the carcase weight and
quality. Therefore cuts of meat vary in
energy and nutrients, composition,
weight and fat level.
Although there are these variations, retail
cuts of meat are influenced by the
structure and composition of the
carcase, e.g. the position of bones and
muscles.
meatandeducation.
Identifying cuts of meat
In general terms:
• the front half (forequarter) of a carcase has more
muscles (per cut of meat) which have worked
harder, contain more connective tissue and
therefore give less tender meat;
Cuts of meat from the neck and shoulder
muscles, in particular, have long thick fibres and
contain a lot of connective tissue.
meatandeducation.
Identifying cuts of meat
In general terms:
• the back half (hindquarters) of a carcase contains
fewer muscles (per cut of meat), which have done
less work, have less connective tissue, and
therefore produce the most tender cuts of meat.
Cuts of meat from the loin and rump muscles have
done the least work and have shorter, finer muscle
fibres with less connective tissue and are prime
tender cuts.
meatandeducation.
Beef meat cuts
Find the cuts of meat suitable for slow cooking.
meatandeducation.
Lamb meat cuts
Which cuts would have a higher amount of connective tissue?
meatandeducation.
Porkmeat cuts
Identify which cuts are most likely to be more tender.
meatandeducation.
Choice and variety
To add extra choice and variety, pork can be cured and
smoked.
Bacon
Bacon is produced by curing pork with salt or in a brine
solution. After maturing it is sold as unsmoked bacon. It
can also be smoked to give the bacon a darker colour and
distinctive flavour.
Gammon
Gammon is the cured whole leg of pork. It is often cut into
easy to cook slices and eaten hot as gammon steaks. It is
also sold cooked and cold as ham. Some hams may be
cured and cooked to a special recipe to give distinctive
flavours, such as ‘honey roast’.
meatandeducation.
Choice and variety
Offal is not strictly a meat cut – it is the word
used to describe those parts of cattle, pigs and
sheep which are cut away (off-falls) from the
carcase when it is being prepared for sale.
Offal types
• inside the carcase – these include liver,
kidney, heart, tongue, sweetbreads and tripe.
Blood is also a type of offal, and is used in the
making of black pudding.
• external part of the carcase – these include
pig trotters, ox cheeks and oxtail.
meatandeducation.
Meat cuts and cooking
The method of cooking selected for a cut of meat will depend on:
• the type of muscle fibre it is made up from;
• the amount of connective tissue it contains.
Cuts of meat which are from muscle areas which do a lot of work
will need longer, slower cooking methods, e.g. stew, casserole.
Cuts of meat which are from muscles areas not so heavily used by
the animal can be cooked much more quickly, e.g. grilling, stir-
frying.
Offal such as oxtail and heart need longer, slower cooking such as
braising or casseroling. Liver and kidney need shorter cooking
methods. Liver can also be cooked and minced to make pâté.
meatandeducation.
Cooking techniques
Barbequing
Cooking food (normally in an outdoor environment) on a
pre-heated trivet or grill, over wood or charcoal embers or
gas flame.
Grilling
Quickly cooking or browning food under the radiant
heat of an electric element or a gas flame. This is only
appropriate for tender cuts of meat, no more than 5cm
thick.
Frying
Shallow: cooking food, in a small amount of fat, in a
shallow pan.
Stir: quickly cooking food, with or without fat, over a high
heat.
Deep: cooking food in a large amount of pre-heated fat.
meatandeducation.
Cooking techniques
Roasting
Cooking food using dry, high temperatures in an oven.
The dry heat caramelises the surface of the meat.
Pot roasting
Cooking a joint of meat, which has first been browned,
on top of vegetables, with very little liquid, in a pot with
a tight fitting lid.
Casseroling/Braising/Stewing
Slowly cooking tougher cuts of meat, in plenty of liquid
with a tight fitting lid. Braised meat sits on a thick bed
of vegetables with strong stock. The cut of meat used
is normally cubed, diced or steaks.

Summary
• Meat is available to buy in the form of cuts, joints or mince. It is
also available ready prepared, e.g. sausages, ham, burgers.
• These types of cuts make it easy for the consumer – they
provide choice, and are convenient to prepare, simple to store
and easy to cook.
• Different cuts of meat have different characteristics, e.g. energy
and nutrients, composition, weight, size and appearance.
• Because of where the cut of meat comes from on the animal,
different cuts require different cooking methods, e.g. slow
(casserole), quicker (stir-fry).
• To add choice and variety, pork is cured. Offal is also available
to be used in a range of popular dishes, e.g. liver and bacon.

A wide range of different cuts are available, giving greater choice and variety. Carcase meat is prepared into cuts, joints and mince to make it: • convenient to buy in smaller amounts; • convenient to buy in suitable portions sizes, e.g. chops, steaks; • easier to prepare and quicker to cook; • easier to store safely.
  • 4. meatandeducation. Meat today Today the consumer is looking for meat that: • can be used in different ways; • is convenient to prepare; • simple to store; • easy to cook; • is low in fat.

Meat today • Boneless cuts (beef, pork and lamb) – economical and suitable for quick and easy methods of cooking, e.g. grilling. • Boned and rolled joints of meat – smaller joints to reduce cooking time and making it easier to carve. • Lean and extra lean cuts – trimmed cuts of meat which are lower in fat.
  • 7. meatandeducation. Meat today • Cubes of meat – sold cut into cubes, ready for making stews, kebabs and casseroles. • Lean minced meat – meat is trimmed of fat and minced. • Thin strips – meat is pre-cut into strips, suitable for quick cooking methods, e.g. stir-frying.
  • 8. meatandeducation. Identifying cuts of meat A carcase of beef, pork or lamb is divided into different cuts – which may vary according to the carcase weight and quality. Therefore cuts of meat vary in energy and nutrients, composition, weight and fat level. Although there are these variations, retail cuts of meat are influenced by the structure and composition of the carcase, e.g. the position of bones and muscles.
  • 9. meatandeducation. Identifying cuts of meat In general terms: • the front half (forequarter) of a carcase has more muscles (per cut of meat) which have worked harder, contain more connective tissue and therefore give less tender meat; Cuts of meat from the neck and shoulder muscles, in particular, have long thick fibres and contain a lot of connective tissue.
  • 10. meatandeducation. Identifying cuts of meat In general terms: • the back half (hindquarters) of a carcase contains fewer muscles (per cut of meat), which have done less work, have less connective tissue, and therefore produce the most tender cuts of meat. Cuts of meat from the loin and rump muscles have done the least work and have shorter, finer muscle fibres with less connective tissue and are prime tender cuts.
  • 11. meatandeducation. Beef meat cuts Find the cuts of meat suitable for slow cooking.
  • 12. meatandeducation. Lamb meat cuts Which cuts would have a higher amount of connective tissue?
  • 13. meatandeducation. Porkmeat cuts Identify which cuts are most likely to be more tender.
  • 14. meatandeducation. Choice and variety To add extra choice and variety, pork can be cured and smoked. Bacon Bacon is produced by curing pork with salt or in a brine solution. After maturing it is sold as unsmoked bacon. It can also be smoked to give the bacon a darker colour and distinctive flavour. Gammon Gammon is the cured whole leg of pork. It is often cut into easy to cook slices and eaten hot as gammon steaks. It is also sold cooked and cold as ham. Some hams may be cured and cooked to a special recipe to give distinctive flavours, such as ‘honey roast’.

Choice and variety Offal is not strictly a meat cut – it is the word used to describe those parts of cattle, pigs and sheep which are cut away (off-falls) from the carcase when it is being prepared for sale. Offal types • inside the carcase – these include liver, kidney, heart, tongue, sweetbreads and tripe. Blood is also a type of offal, and is used in the making of black pudding. • external part of the carcase – these include pig trotters, ox cheeks and oxtail.
  • 16. meatandeducation. Meat cuts and cooking The method of cooking selected for a cut of meat will depend on: • the type of muscle fibre it is made up from; • the amount of connective tissue it contains. Cuts of meat which are from muscle areas which do a lot of work will need longer, slower cooking methods, e.g. stew, casserole. Cuts of meat which are from muscles areas not so heavily used by the animal can be cooked much more quickly, e.g. grilling, stir- frying. Offal such as oxtail and heart need longer, slower cooking such as braising or casseroling. Liver and kidney need shorter cooking methods. Liver can also be cooked and minced to make pâté.

Pot roasting Cooking a joint of meat, which has first been browned, on top of vegetables, with very little liquid, in a pot with a tight fitting lid. Casseroling/Braising/Stewing Slowly cooking tougher cuts of meat, in plenty of liquid with a tight fitting lid. Braised meat sits on a thick bed of vegetables with strong stock.

  • 25. meatandeducation. Summary • Meat is available to buy in the form of cuts, joints or mince. It is also available ready prepared, e.g. sausages, ham, burgers. • These types of cuts make it easy for the consumer – they provide choice, and are convenient to prepare, simple to store and easy to cook. • Different cuts of meat have different characteristics, e.g. energy and nutrients, composition, weight, size and appearance. • Because of where the cut of meat comes from on the animal, different cuts require different cooking methods, e.g. slow (casserole), quicker (stir-fry). • To add choice and variety, pork is cured. Offal is also available to be used in a range of popular dishes, e.g. liver and bacon.
