Fine Meats:  Best in class

What makes beef the best? The USDA defines beef by classes, grading it on tenderness, juiciness and flavor, which are based on marbling and maturity.

Marbling is the dispersion of fat within the lean. The higher the marbling, the better the grade. And the better the grade, the better the taste! Those tiny white flecks found in meat – that’s the marbling! - are what give it consistent flavor and juiciness.

Not only is marbling a factor in beef grades, the degree of maturity also plays a key component. Maturity is based on physiological age rather than the chronological age. The youngest of cattle are classified as having “A” maturity, which denotes excellent color, texture and tenderness.

We are proud to say that all of our beef is USDA Choice – one of the top grades and our beef is the top 1/3 of that grade – and it’s Black Angus Beef, which means its even rich and tender to give you exceptional flavor. Other stores may sell USDA Select beef, a lesser grade, but we’re committed to only bringing you the best beef.

For better beef, better choice, guaranteed, head on down to Raley’s, Bel Air and Nob Hill Foods.

And for great Labor Day savings, our Raley’s Black Angus Beef Tri Tip Roast is on sale for $4.99 a pound!
