The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has certain grades to help consumers differentiate between different quality beef.
Two simple infographics set about explaining the different USDA grades for beef and exactly what each one means, giving suggestion to cook them perfectly.
From the highest USDA Prime to the cutter and canner grades lower down the scale, they quickly explain exactly what a USDA grade on meat is telling you. There are eight grades listed by the USDA but one of infographics shows nine with an split added between choice and what they call higher choice.
