Butcher's Cooking Guide
One of our butchers' favourite parts of their job is talking to customers. Our butchers love to
share their expertise and tips. Below is just a flavour of the advice that they can give.
With your thumb straight out the muscle at the base of your thumb is the same density as a RARE steak.
With your thumb curled in like a solder salute, it's the same hardness as a MEDIUM steak.
With your thumb closed over like a scouting salute the hardness of your muscle is the same density as a WELL DONE steak.
