<p />I seared these tenderloins last night: very tender but bland on flavor. I've concluded ribeyes are my favorite with strips a close second. What is your favorite steak? [p]I'm asking because while steaks are still on the menu, they are becoming a special cook item, dang cholesterol! Just want to make sure, I'm not missing something. Thanks Tom

    tjv,
    I love grilled beef, so my favorite steak is the one I happen to be eating at the moment. [p]That said, I almost always go for the strip steak, but the rib-eye is very close.

    tjv,[p]For now, tri-tip cut into steaks about three fingers wide are high on the list for flavor and value. I'm still doing the hot tub thing on them too.[p]~thirdeye~[p]PS nice job on that basket, that was a lot of rolling. Was it all 1/4" and what was the spacing between the rings?

    Happy Trails

    tjv,
    tenderloin is tender, but doesn't have much fat, and so doesn't have much flavor.[p]rib-eyes have a lot of flavor, and are pretty tender when done correctly. lotta fat, lotta flavor.[p]strips are a a nice average of the two, to be overly general. if i am buying a choice steak, raw and unaged, it's usually a strip. for me, a choice rib-eye can be too wet with fat, and can fall apart.[p]if i am buying dry-aged, it's almost ALWAYS a rib eye. the fat has dried out and condensed so that it remains firm (but tender) and doesn't flop apart. i also think it gains most from aging.[p]porterhouse and t-bones are great for show, but i'd rather cook the strip and/or tenderloin by itself. [p]

    <p />tjv,
    I like a grilled Tri-Tip cooked to medium rare. I season with DP's Raising the Steaks rub. Good luck, Tom

    <p />tjv,
    I have got to agree, ribeyes have become my favorite. But when in the area. I have to get a filet from McGonigles.
    I usually wrap in proscuitto.

  • tjv,
    ribeyse, strips steaks, skirt steaks, flank, tenerlion is last.

    ·
  • tjv,
    Yeah...tenderloins for tenderness and always with a sauce (Bearnaise is my favorite) and rib eyes for flavor with nothing but some fresh ground salt and pepper.

  • HungryMan,
    different 'muscle' .. .hanger steak is the muscle that connects the diaphram to the rib cage. .. texture is a little softer than skirt or flank steak, though you still have cut across the grain for the most tender slice possible. ..its got a wonderful 'beefy' flavor .. also called a 'butcher' steak, cause the butcher's used to keep them for themselves cause they knew how good it was. ..very popular in french bistros where its called an "onglet" steak ...likes marinade and a fast hot sear. . ..

    <p />tjv,[p]For me, ribeyes and strips always run neck and neck. We'll call it a draw.[p]Wanting a steak now,[p]TRex

    tjv,[p]The last one I cooked is always my favorite. I like ribeyes, strips and sirloins, pretty much in that order. Actually anything that's not too tough is fine with me.

    mad max beyond eggdome,[p]Next time we're together (perhaps Waldorf???) I need you to give me a lesson in slicing these things. I always seem to screw it up. I know you told me something about separating one muscle from the other but somewhere in the process it always goes awry for me.[p]Love meat, but never claimed to be a butcher,[p]TRex

  • tjv,[p]I love a good fillet for the tenderness, but I bring my own flavor to the party. I'll marinade them overnight in this stuff:[p]2 cups cider vinegar
    1/2 cup good cab. s.
    1/2 cup grocery store grade balsamic vinegar
    1/4 cup EVOO
    1 tsp salt
    1 tbsp black pepper corns
    2 cloves garlic[p]Whir it all up in a blender and soak the fillets for at least 4 hours. Overnight is best. Grill 'em TRex or regular to your desired doneness. Mighty tasty![p]For a steak that stands on its own merit, I'll choose a NY strip. I massage them with EVOO and grind on a little salt and pepper. Off to the TRex machine they go. They really don't need any special treatment or flavoring. y the way, though it has a little firmer bite, a good sirloin can stand on its own flavorwise, too.

  • TRex,
    if you're coming to waldorf pal, i'll make sure to have plenty of hangers to practice on. . .and actually, i've been thinking i'm gonna keep it simple this year and i'm planning on bringing half a dozen of them, doing up with different seasonings/marinades. . .you and me, we'll have a little 'slicing session' :)

  • BBQBluesStringer,[p]Got vinegar on the brain today. That should be 2 cups cider, not cider vinegar.

    mad max beyond eggdome,
    Thanks for the answer. I will probably have to go to a butcher. I never have seen one at publix or anywhere around
