Meat Buyers Guide February 2017


A CUT ABOVE THE COMPETITION Performance Foodservice-NorthCenter has developed the highest quality cut steak program in our market. We have set high standards

for sourcing, aging and production that we believe make for the absolute best steaks. We guarantee it. The sourcing and cutting process is controlled by company-owned operations and knowledgeable employees allowing full visibility and control over the product from our plant to your plate.

Our 3-Step Commitment to Quality 1. Sourcing Quality We maintain strong partnerships with midwest meat packing companies. These companies are dedicated to providing us with the highest quality product available for production.

2. Proper Aging We do not ship any cut before its time. We believe an “An Award Winning Steak� is a properly aged product. The aging process allows natural enzymes to break down the hard connective tissue ensuring maximum flavor and tenderness. Whether you are looking for Dry Aged or Wet Aged, we are committed to aging our products for a minimum of 28 days.

3. Ensuring Consistency After the aging process is complete, every strip, rib and tenderloin is weighed and racked according to eye-size prior to production. This ensures the end product will be consistent in size and shape as the product is hand-cut by master butchers.

Meat Buyers Guide 2017


Why use portion control or cut steaks? Above all, consistent quality. However, there are many reasons to consider sourcing portion control steaks that will positively affect your bottom line.

Consistency Uniform sizing means uniform cooking times and plate presentation. If you are currently cutting your steaks, you most likely have more than one person doing the cutting with other duties to perform. Our master butchers have only one job: to hand-cut the perfect steaks following exact specifications. All ‘CHOICE’ is not created equal. We maintain strong partnerships with midwest meat packing companies. These companies are dedicated to providing us with the highest quality product available for production that meets our tight specifications. Our choice has better marbling, tighter trim level and higher quality product. Our attention to detail and hand-cut operation ensures our customers to receive exactly what they are looking for. You can trust you will receive what you ordered.

Control Your Costs Portioned steaks reduce labor needs, waste and costly byproducts that you would otherwise have to find a use for. Most people tend to cut product heavier than owners want which dramatically increase food costs. Pay for exactly what you need and know exactly what each piece costs. Portioned steak programs give you tighter inventory controls. Smaller case sizes reduce your inventory dollars, extends shelf life with less opened product, and allows you to offer a wider variety of menu items.

Safety Reduce the risk of injuries, accidents and contamination by letting us do the cutting. Our processing facility is USDA inspected and adheres to strict H.A.A.C.P. guidelines.

Wet-Aged Beef is typically aged in a vacuum-sealed bag to retain its moisture. This is the predominant style of aging beef in the United States today. Wet-Aging is popular because none of the weight is lost in the process. In contrast, Dry-Aging will lose up to a third or more of its weight.

In a properly controlled environment, growth of specific fungal species (mold) on the external surface of the meat. This process forms an external “crust” on the meat’s surface, which actually prevents spoilage and is ultimately trimmed off when prepared for cooking. These fungal species complement the natural enzymes in the beef by helping to tenderize and increase the flavor. In particular, the genus Thamnidia produces collagenolytic enzymes that greatly contribute to this process.

Extraordinary Our facilities use a slower line production with a focus on craftsmanship, ensuring a premium Âź inch trim specification, a more consistent product, and higher yields in the kitchen.

All cattle raised for the Braveheart program are sourced from Midwest family farms within 200 miles of the pack facility to reduce both stress on the animals and the carbon footprint on our environment.

Braveheart cattle are raised humanely, and are much smaller than the industry average. In addition, to prevent heat stress on the animal, cattle come from the Midwestâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;no further south than Kansas.

Braveheart cattle are fed a 100% U.S. corn-based diet. This contributes to beautiful meat marbling that produces superior flavor and tenderness. They are also fed in Progressive Beef, third party audited Midwest feed yards.

Our exclusive PathProvenâ&#x201E;˘ food trace technology is used to not only establish a link between an animal and each cut of meat, but also to genetically ensure that our beef is the highest quality and provides the best possible eating experience.

short loin

PORTERHOUSE

Steaks cut from short loin with larger filet showing 1.5" or more filet across thickest part of the filets.

Short Loin •

This cut of beef comes from the back of the steer. The short loin contains part of the spine and includes the top loin and tenderloin.

This cut yields Strip Steak, Kansas City Strip, New York Strip, Porterhouse, and T-Bone (cuts containing partial meat from the tenderloin.)

The T-Bone also yields bone-in Kansas City Steaks, basically the T-Bone without the tenderloin portion.

To tell the difference between a Porterhouse steak and T-Bone, look at the Tenderloin muscle. If it's larger than a silver dollar it's a Porterhouse.

Tender, flavorful cut that delivers a quality eating experience that operators can charge a premium for.

Fulfill patrons' desires for cuts they prepare less often at home.

One of the more than 29 beef cuts that qualify as lean.

Dry heat is recommended. These tender cuts should be grilled or broiled to perfection.

In order satisfy customer cravings for meals they don't prepare at home, take time to test cooking time and temperatures of cuts with different thickness to ensure the exact doneness every time.

Meat Buyers Guide 2017

In New England it is most commonly known as Beef Tips or Sirloin Tips.

Flap steak, or flap meat is a beef steak that comes from the bottom sirloin butt, and is generally a very thin steak.

When grilled, they are tender and juicy. Flap takes on marinades and seasonings extremely well, and has a robust beefy flavor due to a coarse texture.

Of all the thin cuts of beef, it's one of the most versatile. It works well in fast-cooking methods like grilling or searing. It's excellent cooked whole and sliced into thin strips or cubed and put on skewers. It's even great as a slow-cooked braise, where it comes apart into tender shreds, like a Cuban ropa vieja.

What are

BistRo Steaks? Topping the list of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hot," new cuts of meat called Bistro Steaks make the top 10 in food trends. Bistro steak is a somewhat recently coined term renaming those old time butcher favorites: flat iron, Coulotte, hanger, skirt or teres major. These cuts offer a lot of flavor and perform well against the dry heat of the grill. Whether you marinate, rub, sauce or stuff, maximum tenderness is found when the steak is cooked to medium-rare.

Pair Hanger Bistro steak, fresh steamed greens, house-made dressing and consider plating on nontraditional plate for that 'wow' factor.

26

Meat Buyers Guide 2017


Hanger

Also known as bistro

steak or in France, the onglet. From the diaphragm, this steak is uniform in length and shape and is the traditional cut in France for a Steak Frites. Recent popularity has driven the price up a bit, but it is still the perfect choice for the classic dish instead of the increasingly thin NY Strips.

Skirt Steak

The trimmed, boneless portion of the diaphragm muscle, which is attached to the 6th through 12th ribs on the underside of the short plate. Flavorful steak best for a variety of profitable dishes. Ideal with a tenderizing marinade. Carve thinly across the grain to promote tenderness. Best prepared using dry heat including grilling, broiling, and stirfrying.

Teres Major

Also known as Bistro filet or petite shoulder tender. The most tender muscle in the shoulder

and has a very close imitation in taste and texture of filet mignon. Makes for a good small steak or can be cut into bits, sautĂŠed rare and served over egg noodles for a slightly more decadent take on beef stroganoff.

Coulotte Steak Also known as top

sirloin cap steak or boneless top sirloin cap. Cut to maximize

tenderness. Easy to prepare and offers the full sirloin experience at a lower cost. Best prepared using a dry heat, marinated or seasoned with an herb rub then dry roasted or grilled.

Flat Iron Steak

Also known as the top blade or butlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steak. From the shoulder, more flavor but not quite as tender as the teres major. Never needs marinating and when sliced on a bias and arranged on a plate over mashed cauliflower or parsnip puree makes for the perfect Instagram plate.
