re: Favorite cut of beef
A porterhouse is cheating since there is a filet and strip included. If it is a good cut of beef I will take the strip. Much more flavor.

I've purchase a whole cows. I have four boys. I get steaks and hamburgers. The processor lets me keep the heads. I bury them in the ground for 6 months to let bugs eat the flesh off and wind up with a nice skull.

re: Favorite cut of beef
So many to choose from:

Bone-in dry aged ribeye (I dry age my own when I can get primal cuts)
Chuck eye steaks
Pichana
Tri-tip
Whole bravatta, skirt or flank for carne asada & barbacoa
Short ribs, onions and mushrooms in a red wine reduction via an instant pot

re: Favorite cut of beef
I love the flat iron when I’m doing carne asada fajitas or doing a sliced steak meal. Relatively new “cut” of meat, and my gosh does it make a mean fajita. I used to use sirloin, but flat iron to me is far superior. Marinate it in Allegro brisket and fajita marinade (plus other seasonings) overnight, then sear and cook it whole and slice it on my Blackstone grill. Add fresh cilantro and lime, and wowza!

For unsliced steak, I usually go with a ribeye.

re: Favorite cut of beef
In response to the original post:

Every year when I was young, my family was blessed with a whole beef provided by my grandfather. I mean- A WHOLE BEEF!
This meant that Dad would tote me in his company car to the slaughter house in Ona, WV and we would load more than 1500 lbs of meat into the car. Trunk, back seat, a third of the front seat... You get where I'm coming from.

The tongue was the only portion of it that we reserved for the cats. Everything else was absolutely delicious of prepared properly. And, now that I'm in my 50s, cattle tongue ain't really bad at all.

Enjoy all the ribeye, sirloin, T-bone, ground beef, and every other cut that you know damned well is good. Then, when you have a question about a cut, look up a recipe on line and find out how to do it right. (Southern recipes have precedent, but there are a few good Yankee ideas as well - you'll just need to adjust the seasoning.)
The only part of a beef that isn't good is the part that they pass through their arse when they're in the field.

I'm gonna bookmark this page with an eye toward seeing what you come up with while you prepare your half-a-cow in the coming months.

Good luck to you in all the delicious ways you'll find to prepare beef for you family. It's football season, and tailgating will provide the impetus for great prep ideas! Be sure to share what you find here so all of us coon-asses can keep up with you!

I’m a filet or NY Strip guy. A Publix branded grocery store in bham has Kobe filets that are to die for (very pricey though)

I love to order a short rib at restaurants. My favorite is the dr. Pepper braised short rib at local 463 in Ridgeland/Jackson

Very good restaurant and owned by the same people that operate caet and Walkers drive thru located downtown. All three are exceptional and among the best in the area.

Shapleys and Ely’s are my favorite steak places in that area. Shapleys will cut you a filet in any size you want.

How do you dry age at home?
