Jacob Dickson of Dickson's Farmstand Meats
Dissatisfied by the transportation of local meat (often slaughtered animals are layered in bins and kept in warehouses overnight before being transported to the city), Dickson built a custom transport truck which takes his meat directly from the slaughterhouse to his Chelsea Market location. There he uses as much of the animal as possible to offer some more obscure cuts than maybe we're used to.
Pichana Top Sirloin Cap at Dickson's Farmstand Meats ($18/lb)
Dickson suggests cooking this top sirloin cap like a duck breast: searing it fat side-down on high heat before glazing and finishing the marble-y red muscle side. He informs us that each sirloin is composed of three different muscles, and "because each muscle runs in a different direction, we single them out because they all cook and eat a little differently." Dickson's offer all three cuts (top sirloin, pichana/culotte, and sirloin filet), along with some more specialized cuts of beef, lamb and pork.
