I live in Russia and the cuts of meat at the butcher are different than in the States. What is chuck? Any substitutes for this?

The cuts vary from country to country, and sometimes different countries use the same name for a different cut. A lot of the meet cut charts are available on the internet. You can start by looking at the meet cut chart you are familiar with and then look for equivalent or similar cuts at your meet shop. (For example, I often turn to the charts at http://www.virtualweberbullet... )

I spend much time in Germany and have the same problem with meat cuts. I have an excellent butcher who is very patient with the resident Ami. I figure out which part of the beast the cut comes from, explain what I want to do with the meat, bring the recipe and picture and we work out the German equialent. orks every time.

Chuck is a piece of meat used for long, slow cooking--pot roasts, stews, tagines, etc. It is rather fatty and not considered a choice cut, but cooked properly, it is delicious. Good luck!

When I was a child, my mother ordered ground chuck from the butcher. I considered it the equivalent of ground beef, so something that would be a pot roast if it wasn't ground.

Говяжья шейная часть – это часть говяжьей туши, которая известна как затылок. Это мясо имеет прослойки жира и сухожилия. В продажу она поступает обычно в рубленом виде разрезанная на небольшие куски. Шейная часть по цене ниже, чем филейные части, но при правильном приготовлении она поражает своим изумительным вкусом.
