The 5 Best Cuts of Beef You Want to Grill and How to Cook Them to Perfection

0

There is no doubt that beef is the go-to-meat for many guys, who cannot imagine a life without beef. However, many people don’t know about the best cuts of beef that they are cooking and eating especially when steak is considered. There is no such cut that is perfect for a person, but if you know the difference between the various types of cut and how to cook them, you will have a nice steak experience. So, let us look at the 5 best cuts of beef you want to grill:

1. Top Sirloin Cap


14054772_lTop Sirloin Cap is a very rare cut of meat that you can find. This is because it is already sectioned out perfectly into steaks. The unique cut is done from the triangle shaped muscle that is located just above the top sirloin. It is a very versatile and a unique cut of meat. It is lean and is also very flavorful. This unique cut has a wide range of preparation options such as grilling, pan searing and broiling. The top sirloin cap can be seasoned with a dry rub or marinated properly for best results.

2. Tenderloin


11834456_lThe tenderloin is the second best cut of beef that you would want to grill. It is known as a filet in many parts of the world. It is actually a cut that is made carefully from the loin of beef. The tenderloin exists just next to the backbone and beneath the ribs. It can be easily understood from its name that tenderloin is the most tender cut. Many people enjoy the tenderloin, especially the ones who do not like the marbling of strip loin and the rib eye.

3. Top Sirloin


7352371_lThe top sirloin is the third best cut of beef that you would like to grill. It is a thick cut that is made from the loin. It provides good flavor and is considered ideal for broiling, grilling, pan-frying or sautéing. However, you should keep in mind that the top sirloin doesn’t have marbling as much you can find in a New York strip or a rib eye. It doesn’t matter much to people because it provides great flavor for a steak. When making the top sirloin cut, the preferred thickness is within 1 to 2 inches. The 2 inch thickness is generally considered ideal. When cooked, the thicker steaks don’t get dried out too easily.

4. New York Strip or Strip Loin


16581204_lThe strip loin is often known as New York strip, strip steak and club steak internationally. Here, the cut is made from the short loin, which is a large muscle that allows very thick cuts. There are many people who don’t like the fat content that is found in the rib eye. The strip loin serves as a great alternative for those people. Sometimes, the strip loin is also sold along with a piece of the tenderloin. It is called T-bone steak and sometimes a porterhouse. The primary difference between these two terms is that there is a larger chunk of the tenderloin found in the porterhouse.

5. Rib Eye


40230729_lThe rib eye is one of the five best cuts of beef that you would love to grill. It is the ultimate steak of a steak lover. It has the best flavor and is therefore a favorite of every beef lover. Since it has a very rich marbling, it provides a great taste when it is cooked. The cut is carefully made from the rib section and therefore it is known as rib eye. The bone is typically removed from the rib before sale. However, there are also some restaurants that sell “bone-in rib eye”. The rib eye is the perfect choice for slow roasting and grilling because it has an abundance of marbling.

Now, we need to know how to cook the mentioned cuts of beef in the perfect possible way. The steak thermometer is needed to not undercook or overcook the steaks. While cooking beef, most people do not understand whether they should cook it slowly in low temperature or cook it quickly in high temperature.

Reasons why you should invest in a steak thermometer

A steak thermometer must be used for measuring the internal temperature of steaks. It measures the core temperature of the steak while cooking. It has a digital display and a metal probe that is pushed into the steak.

The metal probe of the steak thermometer can be inserted into the steak before you start cooking. The cooking of the steak can be continued until it has reached the desired internal temperature.

When you are cooking beef, you must insert the steak thermometer away from fat, bone or cartilage. The steak should reach the temperature between 63 degree centigrade and 77 degree centigrade. Using a steak thermometer will ensure that you don’t overcook or undercook the steak.

How to cook your steak?

Steaks have great flavor and are well marbled. Therefore, the steaks mentioned below should be cooked over high heat quickly. You can serve them with flavored butters and various sauces. The method of cooking steak includes high heat that would result in quick cooking. The steak thermometer will help you to determine the temperature. You can employ the cooking method of high heat if the steak you are cooking is well marbled.

You can serve steaks with toppings such as peppers, mushrooms, blue cheese and onions.

1. Rib Eye: This steak is the favorite of many people as it has a great flavor. As it is extremely well marbled, you can cook it over high heat.

2. New York Strip/ Strip Loin: This steak is also very well marbled and therefore can be cooked over high heat quickly. If you wish to make beef kebabs, New York strip should be the ideal choice.

3. Top Loin Steak: This steak has good flavor, but if you compare it with rib eye steak, you will notice that it has lesser marbling. Therefore, you must take care of the temperature when cooking it. If you are not ready to spend a lot of money in buying the expensive rib eye steak, you should opt for the top loin steak as it is affordable and tastes good too.

4. Tenderloin: As you can understand from its name, tenderloin is a cut of beef which is very tender. It is located in the center of the body and is protected perfectly by the ribs. Since this cut of beef is very tender, you don’t need to apply heat for a long time. It has a great flavor and so you can choose this cut of beef for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries.

5. Top Sirloin Cap: It should not be overcooked by any means. It is a lean piece of meat that should be best used in stir fries and fajitas.

In order to cook your cut of beef perfectly, do not forget to use steak thermometer. It is very affordable and extremely useful. Don’t think twice to invest in a steak thermometer for cooking expensive cuts of meat.

As you have knowledge about the 5 different cuts of beef now, you will surely be able to cook them in the perfect manner.

What people are saying about us:

  • "The shears arrived on time and in perfect condition. The moment I picked them up I knew these were quality shears. The very first thing I used them for was to cut a chicken in half. I cut through the breast, right down the middle and then through the spine. For a moment I thought something was not right with that chicken because I cut through it with such ease. I was amazed! They are extremely sharp and have a very nice weight to them. I feel tempted to buy another pair just because."

  • "Very fast delivery, very well packed, friendly, professional, courteous & very knowledgeable service. I'm a line cook so I go through 2-3 thermometers a month. This thermometer is very well built & very sturdy. It lights up which helps a lot. It's very quick on the readings which you greatly need when you have 15-25 things you need to check an hour. The probe is approximately 6-7 inches & at first I thought that was quite long but the more I've used it I like the longer probe. What more can I say about this? It's a great deal for the money & with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. I'll be buying a second & maybe a third for home on the barbeque grill."

    By deb

  • "At last, I can open the jars and bottles without asking for help. We were using some gizmo with a rubber strap that I could never understand how it was supposed to work let alone manipulate it correctly. Chef Remi’s jar opener is very simple to use and it really works on the first attempt with little to no pressure or stress on my arthritic hands. I am so glad I ran across this item and it is well worth the price (which is very good). I can use this tool not only in the kitchen but anywhere there's a jar, bottle or similar container to be opened."

    By grace jones

  • "I saw a commercial for these grill mats on TV, it almost seemed too good to be true.....so I bought them to try them out. Everything in the TV commercial was true and more! You can grill ANYTHING on these mats, keeps flavor in foods, you can add cheese & sauces to your food and there's no mess to clean up! Your grill stays clean, your food tastes amazing, and you simply rinse the mats with warm soapy water! I love these grill mats so much I bought another set for my dad, he grills all year round. My dad loved the grill mats also and is now telling his friends about them. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!"

    By Aly's Max

  • "My new favorite kitchen scissors. I love to cook but do everything I can to not have to touch chicken and these are perfect. Nothing worse than a pair of scissors that leave you half way through a cut and then doesn't come through, these are not those. I can't wait to try them out when making jerky next weekend. I will try to remember to post an update after but sure my review will remain the same. These feel very sturdy and like they will last forever. I have ordered several Chef Remi items and love them all. Wish they would make more stuff I could use as I have almost everything available on Amazon from them."
