Which steak should I buy?
So many steaks to choose from, but which is best for you and your family? Which would Dad love best? How about your kids? Looking for date night ideas? Money is tight, but you still have to eat....which is the most economic cut?
We hear you. As a former vegetarian, it took me a long while to figure out which steak was which. As far as I knew, a steak was a steak, but I know now that that is certainly NOT the case.
Some are leaner, some are fatter. Fat is good! Fat helps make the meat more tender and adds nutrients and flavor to the steak. That's why America loves ribeyes as the sort of "staple" steak.
Lean can be good, too. Tenderloin filet, though lean, comes from a very, naturally tender portion of the beef because it isn't worked like other parts of the beef are and doesn't contain much connective tissue, making it a prized cut for date nights.
Of course, there's family time, too. A simple cube steak or a top sirloin steak can go a LONG way for a delicious family friendly meal that everyone will love.
