A beef carcass is divided into four main sections, two forequarters and two hindquarters. These are normally divided between the tenth and eleventh rib bone.
6 Flat rib
8 Prime rib
Very often it is a lack of knowledge regarding the correct cooking methods for the different cuts that causes the versatility of the forequarter to be underestimated. Because the forequarter contains about 2 — 4% more bone and white connective tissue, it is far tastier, although less tender. The percentage of fat in the fore and hindquarters is nearly the same.
9 Thin flank
10 Wing rib
11 Loin (strip loin)
17 Thick flank (Knuckle)
The hindquarter contains more tender cuts that may be prepared by means of dry-heat cooking methods. The hindquarter is from where delicious steaks are cut.
