Don't be fooled by supermarket brand names
Avoid names like Butcher’s Brand, Rancher’s Reserve, and Blue Ribbon. The label to look for is USDA quality grade. Prime is the best (and most expensive), followed by choice, select, then standard. Watch out for these other 50 supermarket tricks you still fall for.
Your favorite burger joint probably uses beef that's much fattier. Yes, that 92/8 ground beef is lean, but if you make burgers with it, you might be disappointed. Learn which foods you should never eat at a barbecue.
Always check the label
Even if those chicken breasts say “100 percent natural,” they may still be injected with sodium-laden broth, salt water, or seaweed extract, which you'll see on the ingredients list. Here are more mistakes you make while reading food labels.

London Broil is a cooking method, not a cut of meat. A package labeled that way is probably a top round roast, a very tough steak that otherwise wouldn’t be worth much. But if we label it as a London Broil—which means you should cook it medium rare with lots of seasonings, then slice it real thin against the grain—it’s at least edible. Here are some more confusing cooking terms, explained.
Despite all the hype, most of us think “Certified Angus Beef” is a marketing gimmick that doesn’t necessarily indicate the meat is any better than other beef with the same USDA grade. Though I have to admit, it does look spiffy on that black tray.

Don't always accept meat as is
Ask me to help. Even if it’s already on a tray wrapped in cellophane, I can cut the fat off a roast, trim a flank steak into stir-fry strips, or grind up a chuck roast.
