When it comes to beef & steak, there is nothing like the flavor of a meat that melts in your mouth. If you are excited about grilling your next batch of steaks, or if you are planning a meatloaf or post roast for your family, there are a few things you can do to ensure that you get great meat every time you shop.
- Bone-In – While it may seem counter-intuitive, buying beef & steak bone-in can actually add a lot of flavor to your dish. Not only can the bones be used for broth, but cooking up a steak on the grill that still has the bone results in a ton of flavor.
- Fat Content – Did you know a higher fat content can mean more flavor? In today’s world of “low-fat” everything, it may be hard to wrap your mind around it, but in reality, there are “good fats” and less desirable fats, so don’t be afraid to go for gold when it comes to your meat.
- Muscle Cuts – Depending on whether you would like a tender cut or a tough cut, looking at how the muscle grain trends through your beef & steak can tell you a lot about how your dish is going to go. If you aren’t sure what to look for, make sure to ask your butcher for advice.
