The Beef Loin Primal is broken down into Short Loin, Sirloin, Top Sirloin, Tenderloin, and Bottom Sirloin. Below is a listing of many of the loin steak names and alternate names for each steak type. The steaks which are bold are the actual names taken from the IMPS meat cutters guide which is used by the NAMP meat buyer’s guide. The UPC numbers are used by the meat retailers to establish standard cuts for supermarkets and retailer shops. I have however found that there are two different sources for the UPC numbers which sometimes list different numbers for the same cut. I don’t know yet which source is more standardized, but they are listed at the bottom of the page. If you are a professional butcher please leave comments to verify or suggest changes to the content listed here.

Looking for a door that has a vented sidelight. Need for sidelight to give the extra opening for a wide wheelchair.
