We’ve all been there – sitting at a dinner table surrounded by loved ones, wine, and of course, steak. Between sharing stories and laughs, you cut into the meat, take a bite, and it practically melts in your mouth. An unbelievable dining experience.
What’s that? You’ve never experienced this? Well, then you’ve probably never eaten a USDA Prime steak.
USDA’s Grading System
After mandatory inspections from Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) to ensure a meat’s safety for consumption, a producer or processor can pay a fee to have their beef graded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The USDA then grades for quality grades, the tenderness, juiciness, and flavor and yield grades, the amount of usable meat.
The USDA defines eight quality grades for beef:
- Standard and Commercial
- Utility, Cutter, and Canner
Why Prime Grade Beef?
While all of the USDA grades are safe for consumption, nothing comes close to the quality, tenderness, and juiciness of Prime Grade Beef. It is most often produced from young, well-fed cattle and is characterized by its abundant marbling and incredible flavor and tenderness, making it the most sought-after and delectable cut of meat on the market.
