Love steak? Then join us for Steak 101 – an education in all things beefy with Local Yocal’s highly entertaining owner, Matt Hamilton.
Steak 101 is divided into 3 segments:
1: Meat Industry Discussion
2: The Beef Carcass and Steak Cuts
3: Grilling & Sampling!
You’ll get the inside story about beef; certification programs, meat grading, cattle raising, grilling, and much more. Be ready to pull back the curtain and take a look at the engine that drives our current commercial food industry.
Learn about the difference between Wagyu vs. Angus, naturally-raised vs. grass-fed, and rare vs. ruined…Visit the cutting room to see what makes each steak special, and then enjoy a delicious tasting of 17+ fine beef cuts, including grass-fed, Wagyu and 100% Angus; housemade sausage, ribeyes, filet, our signature McKinney steak and more! At the end of our 3 hour adventure, you’ll be a bona fide Steakologist!
