Understanding USDA Grades for Beef
USDA beef quality grades predict the expected eating characteristics of the final cooked beef (the tenderness, juiciness and flavor that we all love). The primary factor in determining the quality grade of beef is the amount of marbling present within the cut. The top three USDA grades are Prime (the most marbling), Choice (moderate marbling), and Select (little or no marbling).
What is Marbling?
Marbling is the fat intermingled within the lean beef muscle and can be seen by looking for the small white flecks within the lean red meat. Marbling is a strong predictor of beef tenderness, flavor and juiciness and improves the overall palatability of beef. The level of marbling varies even within each USDA grade, making further distinctions necessary for top-tier beef brands.
