Round Steak Varieties
I thought that this would be a relatively simply project... assemble a list of steaks and their alternate names. Sounds simple. Turns out it is a confusing topic. Different regions have different names for the same steak. Some steak names are used for two completely different cuts. And the Meat Buyer's Guide only specs out a few of the hundreds of names associated with various steaks cut from beef.
The chart below shows a lot of the names which steaks cut from the Beef Round primal go by. The info includes the meat retailer's UPC number and the NAMP/IMPS meat cutter's number. I have cross-referenced it with about a dozen sources, but as I stated the topic is very convoluted. If you are a professional butcher please leave comments at the bottom of the page to update this info.
Using the Beef Round Steaks Chart
The left column shows which part of the round primal each steak is cut from. In the Steak Name & Variations column the names in bold are names found in the IMPS guide which is used for the Meat Buyers Guide. To determine alternate names look at the UPC and/or the IMPS Steak column. If the numbers are the same in either column then the associated names are commonly used for this cut.
Additional resources are at the bottom of the page.
