Across the country, global cuisines permeate and enliven menus; chefs are reviving the great American steakhouse tradition; and consumers want to know where their ingredients came from, whether served on fine china or from a food truck. Staying on trend is more important than ever, and Sysco’s Butcher’s Block brand is designed to keep operators ready for the rush. With our top-quality cuts of beef, pork, lamb and veal, there are no limits to what a chef can achieve.

Butchers are back

Increasingly, consumers want to know that their food is wholesome and of high quality—especially when it comes to meat. That could explain why the number of local butchers is on the rise, with many meat-for- ward restaurants incorporating an in- house butcher program and even offering cuts over the counter. Every Butcher’s Block product is backed by Sysco’s commitment to quality and consistency, ensuring that you are serving the best possible cuts, plate after plate.

A return to basics

The traditional American steakhouse is booming. Whether your establishment specializes in steaks or you offer just a few prime cuts, turn to Butcher’s Block for perfectly aged and marbled beef. Versatile cuts such as boneless ribeye and flank steak can accommodate any preparation, from marinated and grilled to pan-roasted with a dollop of butter. Or go all out with a Butcher’s Block Strip Loin to create your own signature fillet.

Ethnic insights

No matter where you look in global cuisine, meat is a mainstay, from Vietnamese pho to Persian beef stew. Lamb is used extensively in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean foods, while pork is the protein of choice in many Asian dishes. Butcher’s Block meats fit right into any ethnic recipe. Try marinating a Butcher’s Block Boneless Ribeye for delectable Korean barbecue, or slice it up to make deluxe steak tacos. Use Butcher’s Block Pork Belly and Pork Butt for a range of East Asian preparations like Pork Belly Banh Mi Sliders.
