Personally, I think a good ol' Rib-Eye steak is hard to beat! Of course, if you know how to marinate 'em just right and cook them to the point of perfection, you can still have some great tasting steak from the cheaper cuts.
I personally love fillet steak but it's extremely expensive!
It's very good medium to well, with a mushroom sauce, chips, peas and onion rings heaven ...yum
I adore rib eye steaks and my husband loves strip steaks. both so tasty
Porterhouse is the best steak to eat so I guess it would be the best steak to cook.
Unless the beef's no good, there's no such thing as a bad steak. All the usual cuts are delicious. It's a matter of handling. You don't treat a shank as you do a rib eye, for example, but properly done both are great.
How does the idea of 'minute steaks' grab you? Usually there's little or no fat on them, and once tenderised they take literally minutes to do and you can do them last, whilst the potatoes and other veg simmer away in pans with their lids kept slightly open by wooden spoons. Mushrooms can be added to the frying pan/grill pan whilst the steak browns, soaking up the meat juices. A last-minute addition can be half tomatoes ("we say potaytoes, you say potartoes, let's call the whole thing off!").
All I can say now is "enjoy").
I was feeling cheap today and actually had "minute steaks" with potatoes, mushrooms and onions a few minutes ago. Minute Steak/Cube Steak or whatever you call it, is decent but if I got the money and time, I'm still going with Rib-Eye steaks...
You need a mortgage to buy Rib-Eye steaks here.
I really enjoy Rib eye. start with sprinkling salt and pepper, then a rub of 2 tbsp olive oil, let sit for 5 minutes. heat a cast iron skillet to med high, put in 1 tbsp butter let melt. Add steak, cook on one side (do not touch.) for 3 minutes. Then flip and cook another 3 minutes For medium rare 4 minutes each side for medium, and 5 minutes each side for well. (but trust me you will want it either medium rare or medium with a bit of red in the middle.) Take steak out of pan and place on plate and let rest for 5 minutes or so. (if you want cover with another plate or tin foil, your steak will continue to cook because of residual heat.)
Put in 1 tbsp butter in the still hot pan, add a bit of chopped garlic, a handfull of chopped onions. Saute this till onions are slightly brown (caramelized) Add 1/2 cup red wine (any will do) cook 10 minutes letting it reduce. add 1/3 cup cream, and (yes you got it) 1 tsp butter.stir and continue cooking till thickend and a bit brown. Serve over the steak with a nice side of butter and herb new potatoes or herb garlic rice a roni.

I grilled these marinated flank steaks about four minutes a side on medium high heat. They were medium in the thin dots and medium rare in the thicker spots. The kids loves them.
