Beef is graded on several factors including maturity, texture and lean color. Most notable difference refers to the amount of marbling (fat) content in the meat. Generally speaking the more marbling, the more tender the beef and the more flavor it has.
Select, grade beef, sometimes known as Good grade, is very uniform in quality and somewhat leaner than the higher grades. It is fairly tender, but because it has less marbling, it may lack some of the juiciness and flavor of the higher grades. Only the tender cuts should be cooked with dry heat. Other cuts should be marinated before cooking or cooked with moisture to obtain maximum tenderness and flavor.
