What Is Your Favourite Steak?

Thu Nov 26, 2009 5:02 pm

My favourites are: Sirloin, prime rib, T-bone steak. Rib eye is very nice too.

Rump steak=ok.

Fillet Mignon is not my cup of tea.

You?

BTW which one is more expensive? Sirloin or Fillet Mignon?

Kobe is still more expensive than Waygu right?

I have seen people rating steak from M0 to M13. Absolutely bullshit I suppose? My 2 cents. It's either super prime, prime, ordinary etc.

Definitely a nice cut of filet for me is the best. I also like Prime Rib and Ribeyes.

And Filets are much more expensive than sirloins.

Never heard of the M0-M13, but sounds like bullshit to me, too.  Wink

Although not "politically correct" nowadays due to dwindling stocks mine would be swordfish steak.
But as far as beef steaks, which was the OP's intention, I'd say a prime NY strip steak, medium-rare, with garlic mashed potatoes and either steamed broccoli or asparagus.

My favorite is a thick cut (1" at least) 3/4 to 1lb rib eye steak, bone-in-rib if im in the mood. I prepare them peppered, and then sear them in such a way that the outside is very well done (lots of blackening) yet when you cut the steak the layers transition from well done to almost rare in the middle. As a side I make Uncle Ben's wild rice.

It was a quick and easy and extremely delicious dinner I made many times during my college days.  yes  I would shock other people since they would never imagine a 125lb skinny guy like myself (I've gained 20lbs since lol ) downing a over 1lb of bovine muscle plus lots of rice in one sitting. Of course, I would get a major food coma afterward Big grin

My favorite is Antelope steak, I've had it a few times now and it's delicious. A smooth soft texture, not tough at all, but with a richness similar to pheasant or other small game.

Beef wise, give me a nice thick steak of any kind, just make sure it's the rare side of medium, nice and pink in the middle, but just above blue. I find it very difficult to describe, but I can cook it myself to perfection.

Favourite steak is definitely skirt steak.

A bit tougher than your regular tender cuts but much more flavourful. Absolutely delicious medium or medium rare.

Probably a t-steak....ideally medium-well, but so many idiots can't tell the difference so I take it medium a lot of the time. Ideally with more than a hint of pepper.
On the side, I have either mashed potatoes with lots of gravy and mushroms, or sauteed veggies with lots of butter (if I wanna watch my diet :p).
I always go for a Coke....God forbid I'm forced to down a Pepsi. And if there's no Coke, I go for mineral water with a few drops of lemon.

That is a good combination as well. Though I would go very VERY light on the garlic, IF any.

Garlic is so overdone nowadays. Apparently Olive Garden's/Macaroni Grill and other crummy wannabe authentic restaurants like those think the definition of "Italian" is to dump tons of garlic in everything  banghead

Too True FLY, Too True! I love garlic, but, as you said, it is so overdone at a lot of places that it overpowers the natural flavor of not just potatoes, but other foods as well! Same with seasonings too!

Now, my sister's garlic mash pototoes are a religious experience!

Funny you should mention flank steak! My ex-GF in Australia made a fantastic flank steak that she had marinated in red wine marinade for two days, grilled on a BBQ, then served sliced in strips over some sort of rice that was aromatic and extremely flavorful.

If I recall correctly, isn't flank steak very INexpensive?

I'm going to go with filet mignon, medium well. Generally none of that "topping" business for me, although I'm open to experimentation I suppose. Second choice would be a nice sirloin, also medium well. I like the leaner cuts. There are really no gastronomic delights better than enjoying a large chunk of meat...

A question: Some steakhouses like to ask you if they can butterfly the steak to cook it faster. Since I'm not exactly a steak connoisseur, I have no problem with that, but some purists really seem to turn up their nose at it. Does it make a difference, and do you care?

As for the Pat's vs. Geno's debate, it's one that amuses me to no end. It's the same food, from the same supplier, prepared the same way, and yet everyone is rabidly passionate that one is better than the other. Really funny!

Ribeye, 1" - 1.5" thick from a decent local butcher.

Buy on a friday night on the home from work, place in the refrigerator.

Remove from refrigerator abut an hour before eating on Saturday evening; season with sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, both sides, leave to warm to room temp.

Cook on a hot griddle to get the char marks; rare for me, medium rare for mrs fruitbat (she's a heathen). If cooking for guests, anyone asking for more cooked than "medium" or mentioning the word "butterfly" gets kicked out of the house.

Get it right using the finger test:

http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/the...est_to_check_the_doneness_of_meat/

Serve with twice (or thrice if I'm feeling indulgent) fried thick cut chips (NOT fries); garlic mushrooms; beer-battered onion rings; garlic roasted or grilled tomatoes; peas (a must for mrs f); mustard and tomato ketchup.

Wash down with a bottle of slightly rough Shiraz.

Fall asleep on the sofa.

Wake up, find the indigestion remedy, go to bed.

Perfect.

Well...

Hibachi or grilled/smoked for me!

Coming back to the types tho, I do have to say that the front runners are NY Strip, Fillet Mignon, Sirloin... Prime rib is a very very close 2nd...

I love steak period. IMHO, some of the cheaper cuts have better flavor than some of the pricier cuts. Personally, I like a nice sirloin, t-bone or rib-eye. New York strip is a good cut too but a bit overrated IMHO.
