So what is your favorite cut of steak?
I recently picked up 13 pounds of rib eye for $4.99 a pound. The same place now has strip steak for $3.99 a pound if you buy 10+ pounds.
Rib eye is good and has a lot of flavor, but there is also a lot of fat and other chewy parts in there that you have to get through. My buddies swear by rib eye and I have been enjoying it, but it's not my most fav cut.
I hav to say, that the porterhouse is the king of steaks for me. You get the strip plus that big section of tenderloin which you can peel of the bone with just your fork. You also get just enough fat to add flavor, tender meat and very little cartilage to chew through. The problem is it is hard to find for less than $10.99 a pound. You are paying for some bone in your steak, but who doesn't get all caveman knawing on that bone?
I think I'm going back for the strip steak next. Not as tender as tenderloin or tasty as rib eye, but damn good eatin' steak. Tenderloin is crazy tender but not as flavorful. In fact, sometimes I'll wrap a tenderlojn steak with bacon to add some smoky flavor.
I like a good sear with some crisp fat on the outside, but still rare in the middle. All I put on my good steak is a little seasoning salt and some garlic powder.
I also like flank steak, but you got to marinade the hell out of it.
