Know your picanhas from your kogelbiefstuk, CFIA and USDA create uniform meat cuts / by Glen Jameson

In a world of near-infinite ways to butcher beef and other meats, North America has decided upon one unified way to prepare chicken breasts, beef hips and lamb chops and legs, which will now have the same meaning both north and south of the 49th parallel.

Great news for an importing/exporting wholesaler. And if you like your meat some other way (particularly if it crosses over cuts), remember to seek out and thank your local butcher who buys whole/half cows and can still make your picanha world cup dreams come true. #Brazil2014
