Steak Selection Tips

  • The king of steaks, tenderloin or filet mignon, is a boneless cut with a buttery texture that literally melts in your mouth. It's at its juiciest served rare to medium but, surprisingly, isn’t as flavorful as our next pick.
  • The crowd-pleasing T-bone or porterhouse steak has a bone shaped like a “T” – with the smaller side being a lower-fat tenderloin and the larger side a strip steak with a bit more fat that adds flavor.
  • Another popular cut is for those who like their steak a bit more well-done. It's the rib-eye. It gets its tender, juicy, rich flavor from the marbling and fat.
  • A steakhouse favorite that’s easier on our budget, but still high quality, is the strip steak – it cooks up with a nice crust and has a robust taste.
  • A little less expensive are top sirloin and sirloin filets. They can be tender and juicy but tend to overcook quickly, so keep an eye on 'em.

Remember, you can always ask the butcher if you have questions. And now that you’re a little savvier, you can choose the cut that fits your needs to grill steaks that always taste...

The Easiest Beef Stew Ever

This recipe doesn't just make The Easiest Beef Stew Ever, it also makes the best beef stew ever. That's 'cause it's made in a slow cooker, which means all you have to do is pour in the stew meat, fresh veggies, and other yummies, and let it do its magic.
