•    New York strip

+ Flank Steak, which should be marinated

Notes re: 1/4 Beef


The butcher charges an extra $12 for splitting a half.


Certain cuts are not available in every quarter because there is only 1 per half:

•   Eye of Round Roast (can be steaks)

•   Tenderloin Roast (can be medallions)

•   Flank steak

•   Brisket

The butcher requires a large order to make jerky, so this is not available for quarters.
