    Will breaks beef cuts down into two areas of the cow: front and hind. The muscles in the front quarter do most of the work, so they’re tougher cuts and best used for braising (cooking low and slow in a closed container)…The cuts in the front quarter include: pot roast, chuck roast, beef ribs, shank, brisket, prime rib.
