Horse meat is being eaten all over the world and the pork industry is re-marketing itself, however, beef is still more popular. Whether grilled, seared, or broiled, there are different cuts of beef that everyone should have a taste of and enjoy. Here are some of them:
Filet mignon is a type of steak taken from the small end of the tenderloin. In French, this type of cut is called filet de boeuf, which means beef fillet. In over a thousand pounds of steer, only 7 to 15 pounds of filet mignon is produced, thus making it quite expensive. When grilling, it is advised that cooking time will only be 3 to 4 minutes per side, but when searing, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
This type of beef cut is a cut from the short loin, and a combination of two prized beef cuts – the New York strip and tenderloin. The best way to prepare a porterhouse is to season it with salt and pepper. Recommended cooking time is 3 to 4 minutes per side when grilled, and 4 to 5 minutes per side when seared.
A T-bone steak got it’s name because of it’s T-shaped bone. This is much like a porterhouse, but it is cut from the front end of the short loin. This is one of the most favorite types of steak and is best eaten with potato salad and a cold beer.
