Please don’t send this form back.This is just a guide for you to use at home, to assist you in your decision making. Brad, at Wengers, will review these cuts with you.


How many per pack: ____1 or ____ 2  

Because thin steaks cook so rapidly, it’s easy to overcook them. So, we recommend that you have your steaks cut at least 1 inch thick or more.  If you want boneless steaks be sure to specify that.  If you would like smaller steaks (8-12 oz), especially from the sirloin, let the processor know or they will likely average 1.4-1.8 lbs

NY strip or T-bone/Porterhouse steak thickness:

____3/4” _____1” _____1 ¼* _____1 ½  

Unfortunately, you can’t have both tenderloin fillets (fillet mignon) and T-bone/porterhouse steaks. The tenderloin is the small part of meat on a T-bone/porterhouse steak. If you want separate tenderloin fillets from your quarter of half, ask the butcher for them and for New York (NY) strip steaks. A NY Strip steak is the larger portion of meat from a T-bone/Porterhouse with the bone and tenderloin removed.

Rib eye: You can have this cut as boneless ribeye or bone-in rib steaks or as a standing rib roast (with bones), or ribeye roast (without bones).

Short Ribs: Most people opt to grind the short ribs into ground beef. Consider a cut called an English cut if you plan to braise them. You can have them deboned which also removes some of the fat. If you like Korean style, grilled, short ribs you can have them cut Flanken style, or across the bone, at about ½ inch thick.

Options for the Round: Round steak is lean, and not quite as tender as other cuts. However there are several delicious options for the round. The round is composed of the top round and bottom round. If you would like to make steaks for London Broil, ask the butcher to cut the bottom round into steaks for this purpose.
