PhillyBite New Cuts of MeatPhiladelphia, PA - The National Restaurant Association named "five new cuts of meat" as the top trend for 2018. As the authority on all things beef, the Beef. It's What's For Dinner. Culinary Center chefs and meat scientists have put together a list of the top five innovative cuts you need to know.


While many of these cuts are available to the home cook, some are just starting to gain popularity in restaurants.

1) Shoulder Tender
2) Sirloin Bavette
3) Coulotte
4) Petite Sirloin
5) Tri-Tip Roast

"If you like Brisket, you might want to try a Tri-Tip Roast. Or, if you're in the mood for Strip Steak, you will probably enjoy the Coulotte," explains Chef Laura Hagen, senior director, culinary, National Cattlemen's Beef Association, a contractor to the beef checkoff. "It's exciting to see innovative cuts gain popularity across the country. Diners and home cooks shouldn't let a name they don't recognize keep them from trying something new."

Whether dining in or eating out, you can count on the beef experts to help navigate these innovative cuts. The new BeefItsWhatsForDinner.com has a section dedicated to beef cuts with details on everything including where the cut comes from, how to cook it, and similar cuts that can be substituted.

For example:

The Shoulder Tender is a lean cut that is shaped like the Tenderloin, but smaller. Like Tenderloin, it can be cut into medallions and is great for grilling, roasting, or broiling.
