Beef Grading Overview
In Canada, beef has a grading scale that ranges from E to A & Canada Prime. The higher the rating (A+), the higher the quality of beef. Beef that has a grade of Canada A and above, will have both a quality grade and a yield grade.

Summit Beef Tenderness Scale
Not all steaks are created equal. Some parts of the cow are more tender than others and produce a higher quality product. Tenderloin (Filet Mignon) is going to be your most tender cut, where as a skirt steak from the Plate is going to be the most tough.
Beef We Carry
As mentioned above, we strive to only carry top-quality grades of beef at Summit Meats, which include AAA cuts and above. Sometimes, we have to bring in single or AA grades to satisfy product demand, but ensure that our butchers always inspect all beef for quality before it hits our counters. Some of the other selections of beef you'll find in our counters include:
AAA Black Angus
Cold Smoked Steaks
Snake River Farms Wagyu
