A beautiful cut of premium Aussie beef needs to be cooked with respect and shared with the people you love. Whether it’s a marbled Porterhouse, a generous forerib on the bone or the humble chuck steak, there is a cut of beef for every taste and budget.  

A steak should be grilled and a roast, roasted, but what about the other cuts of meat?

The cooking method is a very important consideration when selecting a cut of beef as this will influence the final product. As different cuts have different attributes, choosing the right cut can help ensure the meat is tender and juicy regardless of your cooking experience.
