How to cook
Most meats, and particularly beef, will have a clearly identifiable grain. Like a piece of bare wood, the pattern of muscle in the meat will align in an obvious direction. It's particularly apparent in this slab of flank steak.
The lines indicate the individual muscles. The muscles themselves are strong and tough. By slicing perpendicular to the striations, you end up slicing the muscles thin, resulting in more tender slices of beef.
