An affordable cut that’s tasty and tender. For many meat lovers, the flat iron is the best value in a steak.
A tough cut that softens with a slow cooking method. Marinate overnight as a steak or for kebabs.
Popular for pot roast and shredded beef. Grind for a great burger. With more fat, it has more flavor when braised properly.
Makes the best tasting soup, chili or even stew. Cook it slow for maximum flavor and tenderness.
Combines great flavor with a tender texture. Looking to impress others with a steak dinner? The ribeye is your cut.
Well-marbled with fat, but can be chewy if not prepared correctly. Flavorful, tender ribs take a few hours to cook.
The king of big beef cuts, often called a “standing” rib roast. Season well then roast on rib bones to medium-rare perfection.
Larger and meatier than pork ribs, perfectly cooked beef short ribs will have meat that slides off the bones. Slow cook for best results.
Actually two steaks connected by a t-shaped bone, the larger being a strip steak and the smaller being a filet mignon. Top notch steak.
One of the highest quality steaks along with the porterhouse, the t-bone includes less of the filet mignon but is still huge on flavor.
Cut from the tenderloin of the cow, this is one of the most tender and most popular steaks around. Thick, juicy and all-around delicious.
Cut from a little-used muscle on the loin, this steak is very tender, though less so than filet or ribeye. Perfect for any occasion.
Lean yet has excellent flavor when grilled indirectly for about 40 minutes (do not cook past medium because of low fat content).
Very juicy and flavorful if not overcooked. Look for a leaner cut, as fatter sirloin steaks tend to have a lot of gristle.
When marinated and roasted, this lean cut can become very tender and delicious.
A common choice for pot roast, this cut of meat is from the muscular area of the cow, so cook it low and slow for best results, 25-40 mins/lb.
Often labeled London Broil, this steak will need marinating to create tenderness. Lots of flavor for a low price — delicious prepared right!
A very lean cut, flank steak requires marinating and grilling or braising to soften. Ideal for fajitas or stir fry.
Similar to the flank steak, skirt steak needs to be tenderized by marinating and grilling. Skirt is often used to make carne asada.
Shank tends to be tough, dry and sinewy, so it is best when cooked for a long time in moist heat. Great as a low-cost base for beef stocks.
Often used for corn beef, pastrami and barbecue, brisket requires slow cooking to make the meat more tender and bring out the rich flavor.
