Beef Cuts – US, UK, France, Spain

I have been living in Spain for 6 years now, and I also lived in several different countries, and here is the point: beef cuts are different in each and every country in the world.

I don’t really know why, but people cut beef differently in every single country. I guess this is because of culinary traditions, and recipes that call for a determined cut in one country do not exist in another country, which will have other recipes that will call for other cuts.

I often get confused between all the beef cuts names, and this is why I wanted to make this post for reference to my readers, who are pretty international, and who may be as confused as I am. This is especially true if you are a beginner cook.

Below you will find the different beef cuts and their names in the US, the UK, France, and Spain.
