Each steak is cut and trimmed. Ask your butcher to cut your steak to the thickness that you like.

Here are some of the different cuts. All of these steaks are great for grilling.

Different Steak cuts from Old World Meats

Starting at 3 o'clock and going counterclockwise - Boneless Strip Steak, Porterhouse, T-bone and Rib Steak

We will start with the Boneless strip steak; it is near the top of the price range, because it's nearly all meat with no bone. Watch to make sure it has some marbling so it will be tender when cooking.

Next, we have the Porterhouse - "the King of steaks". This steak comes from the beef loin and it actually has 2 parts, one is the strip and the other is a very large filet. It is priced nearly the same as the strip steak.

Next, we have the T-Bone, it is typically a smaller steak, that also comes from the beef loin and has a smaller filet attached. You will see the shape of the bone look like a "T".

Next we have - aah, the Rib Steak, it comes from the front quarter. These steaks are very tender due to the marbling you see throughout. When the bone is removed, it's known as a Rib Eye or a Delmonico steak.
