Beef

Beef is meat obtained from a bovine.

Beef can be cut into steak, pot roasts, or short ribs, or ground into hamburger.

Several Asian and European nationalities include the blood in their cuisine as well—it is used in some varieties of blood sausage.

Other beef variety meats include the tongue, which is usually sliced for sandwiches in Western cooking; tripe from the stomach; various glands—particularly the pancreas and thyroid—referred to as sweetbreads; the heart, the brain, the liver, the kidneys; and the tender testicles of the bull commonly known as "calf fries", "prairie oysters", or "Rocky Mountain oysters."
