Types of Meat and Its Cuts

In many parts of the world, beef is not unusual cuisines, such as in Japan and Korea. In Kobe, Japan, a highly prized beef is produced from cattle that vigorously massaged and fed a dietary supplement of beer; it is called wagyu beef. However, beef is relatively not popular in India; the sanctity of the cow in the Hindu religion forbids the consumption of its meat by Hindu adherents.

With the right seasonings using the right spices and herbs, we can make many kinds of dishes from meat. We can make stew, goulash, steak, burger patties, satay, roulade, and many more. We can cook the meat anyway we like; boil, grill, roast, slow cook, braise, or pan-fry the meat.
