shoulder definition and meaning

What is "shoulder"?

The shoulder, also known as the chuck, refers to a primal cut of meat taken from the front portion of the animal, typically beef or pork. It encompasses various muscles, including those from the neck, shoulder blade, and upper arm. The shoulder is known for its rich flavor and marbling, making it suitable for slow cooking methods such as braising, stewing, or roasting. While it may have more connective tissue compared to other cuts, the shoulder's long, slow cooking process helps tenderize the meat and develop its rich flavors.

What is a "shoulder"?

A shoulder is an essential component of garments, serving to join the sleeves and body of a garment. It is a critical point of tension where the garment must allow for a range of motion while maintaining its structure. The shape and fit of the shoulder can affect the overall look and feel of a garment. The shoulder's construction can vary depending on the garment type, and it can be padded or left unstructured. It is crucial to ensure that the shoulder fits properly to prevent the garment from looking baggy or overly tight. The shoulder's design and fit can also impact the garment's durability and comfort.
