    Which cuts of meat?

    Shop Now
    Ok, so I'm heading to the butcher tonight after work. Does anyone have an recommended cuts of meat to buy? I'm open to pork, beef and chicken at this point. My wife will pick up some fish while she is out.

    But since we can have fat, etc as we see fit on this diet, I'm just wondering what cuts of beef people buy to eat primal? I love beef, so I'll pretty much eat any form... ground, steak, roast, etc.

    Suggestions are appreciated.

    Does your butcher carry grass feed beef? If you don't think you are ready for organ meat, start with beef heart.

    Heart is an organ yes?

    I'm talking ground beef vs rib eye vs tenderloin vs sirloin vs london broil, etc... Anyone?

    Other than the usual suspects, I like both the hanger steak and flat irons (top blade). Less expensive than some cuts (but don't overcook them.)

    Maybe try some brisket? You can find them with lots of fat but this cut takes more time to cook.

    That's great Tom, thanks. I was hoping to find possibly some less expensive cuts... I love flat iron, and I can certainly do Brisket... Crockpot would work I think.

    Thanks again.

    If you aren't ready for organs (start with tongue and heart, give them a shot sometime), then +1 on the brisket.

    Rib eye makes a great steak if you're looking to do some grilling and I love a good t-bone from time to time.
