Interesting Fact: Why is cow meat called beef?
Long story short, it's because of the French invasion of Britain in 1066.
To go into a bit more detail, here's the history:
The Anglo-Saxons (British in the 11th century) spoke Old English, a language with Germanic roots. This language used the word "cu" to describe cattle.
When the French-speaking Normans invaded and conquered Britain, they continued to speak French and using the French term "boeuf" instead of "cu."
As time went-on, the fancier French term became "beef" and was used to describe meat from cattle.
Spoiler Alert: The "cow meat" you're looking for isn't from cows.
Technically, the beef at ChopLocal isn't acutally cow meat.
Cows are female cattle who have given birth to a calf (baby bovine.) And beef from cows is not the highest quality. It is generally less tender and less flavorful, but makes great ground beef, hamburger and things like that.
The best beef comes from steers - younger, full-grown male cattle. This beef is tender, flavorful, and makes delicious steak and other high-end cuts.
