old news, they had this out for a while now
2002-02-06 07:04:55 PM  
Beef is yummy
2002-02-06 07:05:22 PM  
PETA surrenders...
2002-02-06 07:06:02 PM  
It needs a better name. Value cut? Come on, that sounds like soy.
2002-02-06 07:08:36 PM  
Yup... this has been out for a while... :(
2002-02-06 07:09:15 PM  
"Researchers from the University of Nebraska and University of Florida spent three years developing value cuts, examining 5,500 cow muscles for color, fat, moisture content and a way to cut them."

Three years to prepare a steak?

Been buying this for more than a year at the local butcher shop. Web news blows....and they wonder why web news sites are going under, of course it is because web-surfuers won't pay for...outdated, incorrect, unverified crap they pass off as news.
2002-02-06 07:09:52 PM  
They were calling this cut or another the flank iron cut steak. supposed to be low-cost and great-tasting. (Light beer commercial references definitely intended...)

Camp X-ray produces cheaper meat...hmmmm...
2002-02-06 07:14:08 PM  
So thats where all the cows in Colorado are going!

"R.J. Jolly, a rancher from Kit Carson..."

Hey, I've found the Jolly Rancher!

Eye of round is about the only cut of beef I eat, anymore. It's from the thin end of the muscle, about four inches in diameter. It has nearly no fat and makes a great fried steak to go along with my eggs for breakfast.

Archfield: Is it any good?
2002-02-06 07:16:40 PM  
Porterhouse is the best steak there it.
2002-02-06 07:18:12 PM  
cows are good.

I think BeefSteak Charley has been doing this for 25 years.
2002-02-06 07:22:56 PM  
Hmmm, tasty new cuts of beef designed by a marketing department asking themselves, "how can we get people to pay more money for the crappy part of the cow we usually grind into hamburger?"
2002-02-06 07:23:46 PM  
"This is a way of creating steaks out of more of the carcass,"

They're doing a real good job of making it sound appealing.
2002-02-06 07:30:15 PM  
How can you discover a new cut off of an animal we have been eating since we first used rocks as weapons?
I was thinking that my have been talking about a bull penis or something revolting...

2002-02-06 07:34:53 PM  
Mooo mooo moo moo moooooomoooo.

2002-02-06 07:36:51 PM  
You tell 'em, Cow.
2002-02-06 07:39:13 PM  
Not entirely a repeat. The news is it'll be in stores this summer
2002-02-06 07:41:29 PM  
Good defense drew..
2002-02-06 07:45:08 PM  
I don't know about you rich folks out there, but us poor ones have been eating chuck steaks and round steaks for years. WTF?
2002-02-06 07:55:17 PM  
Camp X-ray is finally starting to pay off.
2002-02-06 08:11:41 PM  
Get a pressure cooker. You can buy cheaper cuts of meat, and still cut it with a fork. Dinner in half an hour.
2002-02-06 08:41:11 PM  
"This is a way of creating steaks out of more of the carcass"

Oh, yum. Pass the carcass.
2002-02-06 08:58:39 PM  
"This is a way of creating steaks out of more of the carcass"

This sentence is representative of the reason I became a vegetarian.

Strangely, it is also representative of the reason I'm not a vegetarian anymore. Ain't meat great?
2002-02-06 09:00:18 PM  
This may be the lamest story I've ever seen here...
2002-02-06 09:18:51 PM  
Another outstanding breakthough for meat science!
2002-02-06 09:25:24 PM  
Yes, totally old news.

-he who stacks pork
2002-02-06 09:43:44 PM  
You know, I'm thinking about this headline...

"Scientists discover new tasty cut of beef on cows"

...exactly where else would scientists discover a new tasty cut of BEEF if not on a COW?
2002-02-06 09:51:25 PM  
You mean I ate this tube-steak for nothing?
2002-02-06 10:34:14 PM  
I rub steak on my nipples
2002-02-06 10:55:39 PM  
still, the 'hero' tag is probably warranted. old news or not.'

science: clogging the arteries responsibly since 1951.
2002-02-06 11:56:02 PM  
I think after going through a meat science course i would never want to eat beef again
2002-02-07 02:20:18 AM  
After they invented chorizo and calf fries, I think they were done actually finding "value" on a cow.
2002-02-07 08:35:15 AM  
"R.J. Jolly, a rancher from Kit Carson"

2002-02-07 09:49:18 AM  
A New York Strip is basically the same as a Ribeye, only cut a bit closer to the end.
2002-02-07 11:39:21 AM  
its the ass! cow ass! VALUE CUT IS COW ASS!!!!!!

2002-02-07 11:42:28 AM  
Actually, if you were paraphrasing "Soylent Green", it was Charleton Heston, not William Shatner
