ISO Info on Different cuts of beef

Hi,

Does anyone know a link that explains different cuts of beef and where they are from?

I'm currently in the Middle East and they don't use the same names as used in recipes so I find it hard to know what cuts of meat are what (as I never really cooked meat before). So telling them what part or seeing pictures would help.

I'm wanting to make a chuck roast but not sure what part it is.

Thankyou!

Hi Turando

Where in the M.E. are you? Chuck roast comes from the shoulder of the steer. This site might be of help. Bovine Myology

If you really want to get an understanding of meat cuts I would suggest picking up a copy of Merle Ellis' book "Cutting Up in the Kitchen". It is out of print but you can pick up a copy for peanuts on the web, try Amazon or ABEbooks.com.

I am a great fan of the book.
