Beef Grading 101
This steak is USDA Choice, the second highest level of marbling recognized by the USDA.
Beef sold in the U.S. is graded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). There are eight total grades and Choice is the second highest level.
The USDA describes Choice as “high quality, but has less marbling than Prime” which means our beef at this level is excellent. Whenever possible, we work to use beef from the top one third of Choice for the highest quality possible within the grade.
Marbling, or intramuscular fat, is the most important factor used to grade beef in the U.S. and around the world. This is determined by a visual inspection of the amount and distribution of intramuscular fat between the 12th and 13th rib. Historically, this single inspection provides a correct indicator of the entire carcass.
The New York strip is cut from the longissimus dorsi muscle located within the loin primal. This muscle starts in the rib primal and extends to the round primal. The section of longissimus near the round is called the “sirloin end” and has a crescent shaped piece of connective tissue. The slices are cut from this part of the muscle. The chewy fiber breaks down from heat when cooked.
Fast fact: The New York strip is packed with 6 grams of protein per ounce, but has less fat than a ribeye (2.3 grams vs. 4 grams per ounce).
