Hi,

I am an American travelling in Nagaland, India.

I just got 2 pieces of beef.  Please take a look at the pictures and take your best guess at which cuts these are.  I really need your help, please.

Thank you!

Ben

Buying beef in India would seem as popular as asking for a nice pork chop in Israel ... but I'll raise no beef with that either!

It's a hard ask but, I'd suggest they look like blade/chuck. It would seem to make sense as the cheaper, tough cuts make the tastiest and higher quality curries.

Ha.  The Nagas aren't Hindu.  Here are some more pics.  they split the spine down the middle and gave it to me ribs and all.  I am pretty sure I later found the tenderloin, although I don't know which end, really.

Basically i got half of what you see on the left.

Looks grainy, brisket maybe?
 
There are no more "hours", it's centi-days. They say it's better, but this tiny ad says it's stupid:
