what's your favorite kind of steak to grill?

    1. I would definitely have to agree with mpalmer6c about the ribeye- just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I also enjoy sirloin ( bone in). I find any meat on the bone taste better- on the grill or in the oven!

      1. Ribeye, but I also have had good experiences with hanger steak and tri-tip roast..

        1. Having grilled and eaten literally thousands of steaks over the past 6 decades, I would say the best are NY strip and ribeye. NY strip has a little more texture and less marbling, but is excellent. Ribeye on the other hand, has lots of fat/flavor. It is almost impossible to cook a ribeye poorly....I like steak medium rare, but can eat a ribeye medium...more fat cooks out and the steak does not dry out. And macca is right about the bone: bone-in steaks have more flavor and retain more juice, Simply let the steak sit out of the refrigerator for an hour, salt liberally with kosher or sea salt, and grill over a pretty hot fire. After searing, move to a slightly cooler part of grill. Let it rest for about 5 minutes after taking up, hit it with some coarsely ground pepper and a pat of butter and you are in hog ...excuse me...cow heaven.
