As people become more interested in the food they’re eating and where it comes from, specialized food professions like meatcutting are making a comeback.
As a Meatcutter, you are on your feet working behind the scenes in a refrigerated room preparing cuts of meat for display, or behind a retail counter sharing your expert knowledge and filling orders. Not only can you cook a killer steak and rattle off the differences between a rib-eye, tenderloin and T bone, but you know how to create each cut perfectly.
