Steak Hunt, What's Your Best Beef Cuts?
What's the best beef cuts? What's the best part for you? Since they are usually the expensive items in the menu, it is really worth understanding how each one is different and which you would like better than the other. Me and my partner have been going steak hunting a couple of months now including cooking at home by ourselves. Just to know which cuts we like best. Tenderloin. Sirloin. Striploin. Rib-eye. T-Bone. Prime-rib. Etc. They are of different parts, hence providing variance in tenderness, texture, taste and etc.
This time we were having our shopping at Mall of Emirates, so we decided to head to The Butcher Shop and Grill for our next steak hunt. They are well known for their in-house meat preparation, one of the best steakhouse and burgers. We tried two of their top cuts in the house, the T-Bone/Porterhouse (AED159, 550g) and Prime-Rib/Bone-in Rib-Eye (AED159, 550g).
These cuts are one of my top list due to their huge amount of delicious meat nicely cut, with the bone. A cut that suits me well as i do eat a lot and i love lots of juicy meat.
The T-bone, according to some regulations i found online, its width defines its classification for either porterhouse (1.25") or T-bone (5"). Having best of both worlds, one side of the T-Bone you get the tender Tenderloin and on the other side is the tasty and juicy Striploin.
Primerib... as the other name states quite clear it is the Rib-Eye cut. Rich flavour and juicy tenderness, with generous marbling throughout. Definitely majestic looking even before cooking. Definitely my type of steak, having a rich and beefier flavour.
Marbling are one of the key factors that plays a huge role in determining how delicious the meat can be and definitely defines its quality grades. Stay tune for next Steak Hunt.
Today we will be visiting the Wild Snow Monkeys at Jigokudani Yaen-Koen. Jigokudani is located in the mountainous area near central Japan. P...
