The beef can be almost the same softness as veal, or, on the contrary, very rigid - all depends on breed of the animal, its age and specificity of the muscles chosen for preparation. Muscles of a mature animal have larger fibres and stronger connecting fabrics in comparison with muscles of young bull calf. Therefore the beef is potentially more rigid than veal. If you familiar with beef parts, you can easily determine the best use of beef part in cooking. There are eight major beef cuts. Remember, each part has its special tastes, therefore careful selection of recipes combined with knowledge of beef cuts is important.

Always choose quality organic beef. Natural beef will improve taste qualities of your dish. In Northern America, Australia and Argentina, for example, beef is made as a result of highly productive meat breeds, grazed by huge herds on fenced pastures. In the European countries rather small farms combine manufacture of meat with manufacture of milk. This helps to assure high quality standards of organic beef.
