What Is A Steak ?

A steak is a high quality cut of meat taken from the hind quarters of an animal. The cuts of meat are cut thick and are typically barbecued or fried.

Everyone Loves Steak

Who doesn't want a steak for dinner. There are many choices when it comes to choosing a steak. There is Sirloin Steak (which is my favorite), Rib eye Steak, New York Strip Steak, Flank Steak, T-bone Steak, and many other cuts of meat that will work well with this marinade.

How To Choose A Good Steak

When choosing the perfect steak it is important to be familiar with the different cut of meats. Decide how tender you would like you steak to be, The most tender cuts come from the part of the animal that get the least exercise. Look for a steak that has fat marbling, this fat will melt away during the cooking process and make the steak very, very tender. I would suggest find a butcher shop and become friends with them. Better meat comes from the butcher shop than from grocery stores, but you pay a little more for it. Cuts of meat from the most tender to the least tender are tenderloin, strip, porterhouse and T-bone, rib, top sirloin. Sirloin Steak is my favorite because you get more bang for your buck. It is less expensive than the other cuts of meat, and I think it is just as delicious.

Steak Facts

1. The average cow is composed of 40% percent steak

2. The world's priciest steak is almost white when raw

3. The word "steak" derives from meat on a stick

4. Growth hormones produce more that 700 million pounds of steak

5. The more marbling in a steak, the higher the grade will be. The marbling melts away when cooked and makes the steak more tender and flavorful.

Steak Marinade Revelaed

How you marinade your steak is just as important as picking the perfect cut of meat. The marinades job is to soften the meat and to give it some other flavors that are lost during the cooking process. A marinade can make or break your steak, so it is very important to get it right. I do not suggest buying marinades that are sold in stores for the simple fact they are mass produced, the ingredients aren't fresh, and they are not as good as homemade marinades.

Secret Marinade Revealed

1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
2 pinches cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice



Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mix together well, add steak and completely cover the steak with the marinade, next put the steaks in a large gallon size Ziploc bag,pour the left over marinade in with them, seal, put in the fridge, and let marinate overnight.
