The Brisket is a fatty, tough, and flavorful cut, great for low and slow smoking and grilling. It is a staple of slow-smoke, Texas-style barbecues. The Brisket is the large chest muscle of a cow, and is halved for commercial sale as the Point and Flat cuts of a Brisket (the top and base of the muscle). These cuts can weigh between 2 and 6 pounds. The Point Cut is the smaller of the two, though it is thick, fattier and marbled—perfect for shredding for Brisket sandwiches or corned beef. The Flat Cut is larger, thinner, and leaner with an even layer of fat across the top. The Flat Cut is best for slicing, braising, and slow cooking with moist heat methods, due to the fact it has less fat and tenderness than the Point Cut.

The Flat Iron Steak comes from the Chuck, or shoulder, of the cow. This cut is tender, marbled, and rich—great for grilling due to its even thickness. The Flat Iron is best marinated and cooked to medium-rare for the greatest flavor and tenderness.

Paprika & Bell Pepper Steak with Pearl Couscous

The Chuck Roast, known as the Beef Roast along with the Cross Rib Roast and the Rump Roast, is perfect for crock pot, slow roast, and instant pot recipes. It can be braised and shredded for tasty Beef Barbacoa Tacos, or slow-cooked for a classic Sunday Pot Roast.

The Flank Steak is a rare cut taken from the lower abdomen of the cow. One steer produces only two of these desirable cuts. It is often confused with the Skirt Steak, which is taken from the Plate of a cow. The Flank Steak is the leaner of the two. It is a versatile, thin, flavorful steak, best when sliced against the grain for steak salads, fajitas, and tacos. It should be cooked medium-rare and marinated to ensure the most flavor and tenderness.

The Skirt Steak, which is similar to the Flank Steak, is a rare cut because only two Skirt Steaks can be cut from a single cow. It is long, thin, and mouthwateringly flavorful— perfect for marinating and grilling. Cook it to medium or medium-rare for the best results.

The Hanger Steak is located in the Plate section of a cow and “hangs” from the diaphragm (hence its name). It is also known as the “Butcher’s Steak” because, historically, butchers would keep it for themselves instead of selling it at market—they know a good cut when they see one. To this day, it is difficult to find in grocery stores and meat shops. It is incredibly delicious and just as tender as the prized Tenderloin cuts. Hanger Steaks are best prepared quickly, either through broiling, grilling, or in a sizzling hot cast-iron skillet. 


Korean Short Ribs are a flanken cut, meaning they are sliced thinly and bear a small piece of three or four ribs (traditional Short Ribs usually contain larger pieces of one or two, as mentioned below). Korean Short Ribs are a rare cut, typically only found in Asian markets and grocery stores. This cut will complete any Korean-style barbecues and dinners and should be cooked using high heat methods like grilling and broiling.


Short Ribs are taken from the bottom portion of the ribs on a steer. They are a bone-in, thick, and tender cut which can be grilled, braised, or cooked in any number of methods. They have rich marbling and a delicious flavor.

Rib Eye Steaks are one of the most prized on a steer. At Five Marys, all Rib Eye Steaks come bone-in. In the anatomy of a cow, Rib Eyes sit directly above the Short Ribs and weigh between 1 and 3 pounds. They are tender, beautifully marbled, juicy, and full of flavor. For optimal taste and texture, this cut should be cooked fast using high heat methods such as grilling, pan searing, and sautéing. 


The Tomahawk Steak (or the “Tommy,” as M5 Staff affectionately call it) is a novelty steak, comprised of the Rib Eye Steak, but with the entire rib bone left intact (5+ inches of bone). It is sometimes called the Long-Bone Rib Eye because of this. The extra length of bone is “French trimmed” so that the meat and fat are removed to leave the handle of the “tomahawk” bare. The Tomahawk is cut to be thicker than a typical Rib Eye, with a width between 2 and 3 inches. Because of the size of a Tomahawk, cooking can be tricky. Grilling or oven roasting will be the best methods, cooked ideally to medium-rare. 


The Cross Rib Roast, like the Chuck and Rump Roast, are a variety of Beef Roast. They are perfect for slow cooking methods, smoking, and stewing. They are tender and flavorful, best when cooked to medium rare. 


The Prime Rib, also known as the Standing Rib Roast, is a delectable and huge cut with rich flavor and perfect texture. We offer the Prime Rib exclusively around Christmastime, in cuts with 3, 4, or 7 ribs. It is best cooked at a low temperature for an extended period of time. The Prime Rib is a roast, not to be confused with a steak, and can be cooked similarly to the Cross Rib Roast (and because it’s a bone-in steak, its flavor is even better than other Beef Roasts).

Also known as the London Broil or Fajita Steak, the Top Round Steak is a tender, lean, and versatile cut of meat perfect for stir-fry, fajitas, and other broiled, pan-fried, or slow-cooker meals. It should be thinly sliced, against the grain.


Known as the Beef Roast or Bottom Round, the Rump Roast is a lean cut perfect for braising, slow-cooker Pot Roasts and Instant Pot recipes. It should be thinly sliced, against the grain.


The Round Eye Steak is cut from the Eye of Round Roast in the Rump Round section of a cow. These steaks are economically-priced, but still incredibly flavorful. We recommend using slow-cooking methods like braising and slow-roasting. Pro tip: leave the surrounding fat on the steak throughout the cooking process for juiciest results.



Crispy Sweet & Sticky Hoisin Beef

Perfect Roast Beef Cold Cuts

Osso Buco, or Beef Shanks, is a cut which comes from the upper leg of a cow. “Osso Buco” is Italian for “bone with a hole,” due to the small hole in the bone where the marrow can be found. The marrow is an important feature in the traditional Italian Ossobuco dish. The Osso Buco cut is naturally tough and should be slow-cooked to achieve the best texture and flavor. It is perfect for Beef Bourguignon, Italian Ossobuco, or for nutrient-rich Bone Broth.



Braised Osso Buco

The New York, or Strip Steak, is a premium steak, known for its tenderness and buttery flavor. This steak is perfect for grilling, pan searing, or sautéing for an impeccable steak dinner that can’t be beat.


T-Bone Steaks, like Porterhouse Steaks, include a “T”-shaped bone which separates the strip steak and tenderloin. The T-Bone Steak is located in the middle of the Short Loin where it intersects with the Tenderloin cut (the Short Loin and Tenderloin are the most prized cuts of a cow). In effect, a T-bone comprises meat from a New York Strip and a Filet, thus making it a prized and delicious steak. Cook to medium of medium-rare on a grill or broiler.


The Porterhouse may be the best steak you’ve ever had. Very similar to the T-Bone Steak, it is located in the very back of the Short Loin, and therefore has a larger piece from the Tenderloin than a T-Bone does. It is both the New York Steak and Filet Mignon in one! Like all Short Loin steaks, it is unbelievably tender with a rich, mouthwatering flavor. 



Wood-Fired Porterhouse Steak with Mushroom Sauce

The Perfect Cast Iron Steak

The Top Sirloin Steak is comparable to a T-Bone or Porterhouse, but without the price tag! It is tender, flavorful, and a family dinner favorite. Unlike the T-Bone and Porterhouse, it is boneless and does not include any meat from the Tenderloin. Add your favorite spice rub and cook on a grill or pan-sear for a fantastic steak dinner. 


The Picanha is a large cut, hugely popular in Brazil and other South American countries—it is a staple at Brazilian steakhouses. In the United States (if you can find it) it is sometimes called the Coulotte Roast or Steak, or the Top Sirloin Cap. It is the topmost layer of the Top Sirloin cut on a cow, and therefore has an incredible fat cap. It is delicious and flavorful, perfect for grilling and pean-searing when cut into steaks. 



Steak Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

The Filet Mignon is the most tender steak on a cow, and also very lean with minimal fat. It is perfect for special occasions or those monitoring their fat intake. It is located in the smallest part of the tenderloin which stretches into the short loin. This cut is highly desired and rare on a cow, and therefore an expensive, premium cut. Its flavor can be further enhanced when wrapped in bacon or drizzled with a sauce.


The Beef Tenderloin refers to the entire Tenderloin cut of a cow. Here at Five Marys, this cut is only sold around Christmastime because when it is cut from a cow, a T-Bone, Porterhouse, and Filet Mignon cannot be taken. Because the Tenderloin is the most prized meat on a cow, this particular cut fetches a high price.



Beef Tenderloin with Caramelized Onion-Red Wine Sauce

The Tri Tip is a triangular muscle at the bottom of the Sirloin. This cut is especially famous on the West Coast because it was first popularized in California in the 1950s. In the East, it is typically used for ground beef. It is a rare cut, with only two on each cow. California Tri-tip, or Santa Maria Steak, is a delicious, low-fat, and versatile cut which can be grilled, pan-seared, or oven-roasted to medium-rare for best results. It is perfect for chili con carne, tri-tip tacos, or single-pan steak and fajita dinners.

The Ground Beef doesn’t come from just one place on the cow. It is commonly taken from trimmings and less tender cuts, but at Five Marys we take pride in ensuring our Ground Beef is ground from more desirable cuts of the cow, too! Our Ground Beef is made from trimmings from the entire cow, whether that be the Neck or the prized Tenderloin cuts. A diversity in cuts ensures the greatest flavor and quality of our ground beef.

Like our Ground Beef, the trimmings don’t come from just one place on the cow. At Five Marys we take pride in ensuring our trimmings come from more desirable cuts of the cow, too! Our trimmings—which provide Ground Beef, Kabob Meat, and Fajita Meat— come from cuts on the entire cow, whether that be the Sirloin or the prized Tenderloin. A diversity in cuts ensures the greatest flavor and quality of our Kabob Meat. Our Kabob Meat is cut in cubes—perfect for adding to skewers, serving with fondue, or slicing for steak bites in salads.


Beef Fajita Meat, like our Kabob Meat, is cut from the trimmings of all the cuts on a cow. It is flavorful and juicy, and pre-sliced into fajita-ready strips—all you have to do is throw it in your pan or wok and add your favorite veggies for an easy, delicious weeknight dinner!

Our Five Marys pasture-raised, Navajo Churro lamb cuts produce excellent flavor, and this is especially true for the Leg of Lamb. Our Leg of Lamb cuts are between two and five pounds. They should be slow-roasted or braised, and will be the perfect main course in any Mediterranean dinner.

The Loin is a prized cut on the lamb, known for tender and flavorful Loin Chops and occasionally Loin Roasts. At Five Marys, we sell Loin Chops in packs of four. They are great for grilling, broiling, and sautéing to medium-rare.



Lamb Loin Chops with Green Olive-Orange Relish

The Rack of Lamb is one of the most delectable cuts on a lamb. It consists of eight Rib Chops, all with incredible flavor and texture. Rack of Lamb should be cooked rare, and is best at medium-rare. It can be cooked altogether or cut into individual chops to be cooked individually. It is best to prepare them using high heat, quick cooking methods.


Our M5 Rib Chops come in packs of four delicious “lollipops,” as we affectionately call them. Like the Rack of Lamb, these should be cooked quickly on high heat, whether that be pan-searing or fast oven roasting, to medium-rare. Dip them in our famous Five Marys Chimichurri (recipe below) for a delicious lamb dinner.



Coming Soon!

Lamb Shanks are a bone-in cut, a favorite for lamb dishes like “braised lamb shanks.” They can be prepared in a roasting pot or dutch oven, and taste best when slow-cooked and braised with red wine or olive oil, vegetables, and herbs.

Our gorgeous Navajo Churro heritage sheep have such beautiful hides with long luxurious wool, we decided early on we had to find a way to preserve their beauty and honor the whole animal by tanning them into gorgeous pelts. Our custom made sheepskin pelts are of the finest craftsmanship and involve quite a process to become a pelt. These pelts are supple and soft suede on the back side and incredible long lambs wool on the front, perfect for a cozy couch throw, an ottoman or home decor. They can be cleaned at home with warm water and mild detergent and air dried (never heat or they will felt).

At Five Marys, we exclusively offer Uncured Bacon (which hasn’t been treated with Sodium Nitrate) cut from the belly and side of the pig. Our Bacon is hickory smoked, fatty, and flavorful. It will be a delicious addition to any breakfast meal, BLT, or other recipe.

Bacon Ends are the pieces left after a bacon slab is cut into the traditional strips that you’re used to. They pack a powerful flavor because they consist of the surface which was in contact with the spices and brown sugar during the smoking process. Bacon Ends are cut into small cubes and chunks—perfect for putting on a salad, filling tacos, or adding to soup recipes.


Pork Belly is uncured, un-smoked, and un-sliced bacon. Don’t let its name confuse you, the Pork Belly is cut from the meat on a pig’s side, not the stomach. Like sliced bacon, it has juicy fat layers which offer amazing flavor. You can oven-roast it, fry it, or use it to make your own bacon.


The Boston Butt (sometimes called Pork Butt) is another name for the Pork Shoulder Roast. It is a bone-in pork roast with a juicy, rich flavor. This roast is perfect for slow-cooking, smoking, and especially pulled pork recipes.

Pork Jowl Bacon is cut from the cheek of a pig. In Southern states, it is known as Hog Jowl. It is less fatty than traditional bacon cut from the pork belly. Jowl Bacon is generally smaller than pork belly bacon and therefore is good for adding to salads, casseroles, or as a side on breakfast dishes. 



Cowboy Beans

Like pork belly bacon ends, Jowl Bacon Ends are the excess pieces left after Jowl Bacon is cut from the bacon slab of the jowl. Because they are small pieces, they are pre-cut for a flavorful addition to any side dish. 


Fresh Jowl consists of the entire Pork Jowl, un-cured and un-sliced. This is great for smoking, slicing for sandwiches, or preparing your own Jowl Bacon. 


The Pork Leg is traditionally where ham comes from, which is a cured, aged, and often smoked full leg. At Five Marys, we cut the Pork Leg Roast into 2-inch thick, uncured steaks which we call Pork Leg Steaks. This size is great for the slow cooker and pulled pork, or it can be fried and sliced for sandwiches and other recipes.

Pork Chops can be cut from the Loin, Ribs, and Sirloin cuts on a pig. Pork Loin Chops are bone-in and less fatty, but still unbelievably delicious and juicy. Like a T-Bone steak on a cow, these Pork Loin Chops bear the signature T-shaped bone. It is recommended to cook them quickly, using high heat methods like grilling and pan-searing.

The Ground Pork doesn’t come from just one place on the pig. It is commonly taken from trimmings and less tender cuts, but at Five Marys we take pride in ensuring our Ground Pork is ground from more desirable cuts of the pig, too! Our Ground Pork is made from trimmings from the entire animal, whether that be the Neck or the prized Tenderloin cuts. A diversity in cuts ensures the greatest flavor and quality of our Ground Pork.
