I have received several questions over the last few months about steak. Questions like what is the best cut? What is the best price? What is your favorite cut?
These are all great questions, but here is where I admit that I have not bought beef in a grocery store in over four years. Each year we buy 1/2 of a beef from a local rancher. We get high quality meat for a good price.
Not only is it really good beef, we get some really good cuts of meat that I would not normally buy, especially when it comes to steak. We have been eating much nicer steaks than we ever bought before.
The downside is that mixed in with the good cuts are also some not so good ones, and even a few odd ones like ox tail, but over all buying meat this way works well for us.
However, since I have not looked in the beef section of the grocery store in years, I am a bit clueless as to the best cuts of steak for the best price. So, I need help with this one.
When it comes to just grilling a great steak what is your favorite cut? What is the best steak for the best price? Does anyone else buy a 1/2 or 1/4 of a beef like I do?
