What Is Angus Beef?

Suppose you buy ground beef at the supermarket or order a steak at a restaurant, whether a high-end steakhouse or a fast-food joint, you’ll almost certainly see the designation “Angus beef” on the menu. Although Angus usually scores higher on the USDA scale, this does not imply that Angus is a quality grade or that anything called Angus is superior to any other cut. In reality, Angus beef has very little to do with meat quality.

Instead, Angus is the name of a cow breed.
