From Tenderloin to T-Bone: Steak Cuts and Cooking Methods

Steak cuts are a culinary delight cherished by meat lovers worldwide. But have you ever found yourself standing in front of the meat counter, feeling overwhelmed by the array of options?

Fear not! At Woodhouse Butchery, we’re here to guide you through the world of steak cuts, helping you understand the differences and discover the perfect steak for your next meal.

Understanding Steak Cuts:

Steak cuts vary in flavour, tenderness, and cooking method, making each one unique. We’re going to share some of the most popular steak cuts you’ll find at our shop:

Tenderloin: Also known as filet mignon, this cut comes from the loin region and is prized for its tenderness. It’s perfect for those who prefer a melt-in-your-mouth texture. We recommend cooking tenderloin cuts quickly over high heat to retain their delicate flavour and juiciness.

Ribeye: Known for its rich marbling and robust flavour, ribeye steak cuts are sourced from the rib section. The marbling ensures a juicy and flavorful steak, ideal for grilling or pan-searing. For the best results, cook ribeye steaks to medium-rare or medium doneness to preserve their natural juices.

T-Bone: A true carnivore’s delight, the T-bone steak features a T-shaped bone with meat on both sides – tenderloin on one side and strip loin on the other. This cut offers the best of both worlds: the tenderness of the tenderloin and the flavour of the strip loin. When grilling T-bone steaks, be mindful of the varying thickness of the two cuts and adjust cooking times accordingly for even doneness.

Cooking Tips and Techniques:

Regardless of the steak cut you choose, proper cooking techniques are essential to achieve the perfect result. Here are some tips to elevate your steak-cooking game:
