Some of the new cuts that are being used at restaurants and sold in supermarkets include:
- Flat iron: Very tender cut from a chuck or shoulder and increasing in popularity; usually costs between $12 to $15.
- Denver: Cut from shoulder, usually used for pot roast, but now increasingly being pushed to be used at steakhouses.
- Coulotte: Cut from top sirloin. Restaurants now cut top sirloin into coulotte and filet of sirloin for smaller, cheaper steaks.
- Tri-Tip: Cut from bottom sirloin, it is easy to grill and often sold in California.
