  • Steak - gourmet vs budget

    I searched for existing threads to piggy-back on but to no avail, apologies if I had a "boy look".

    Anyhoo, this weekend I did a back-to-back comparison of a gourmet vs budget scotch fillet. Basically the gourmet one was amazing and I also had a slab of budget stuff in the fridge, so tried to see if I could replicate the results for 1/4 the price...

    You can cook me a steak any time you like. Yummy. The steak's not bad looking either.

          FWIW, there's a place that sells all kinds of meats around here. I prefer their sirloin, which is 8.29 a #. Great stuff, my company even serves it at our annual picnic.

          Then there's the "cheap cut" sirloin. 6.29 a #. You can definitely tell the difference. Even my wife, who doesn't usually know the difference between good and bad meats, can tell it's not quite as good.

          In both instances, they are cooked on a grill with no marinating, rubs, or spices.

            Sirloin - specifically porterhouse here - needs good intramuscular fat to stay juicy, it's very easy to get a dry cut which isn't at all pleasant, but when it's good it's sublime.

            Also it should really be served with the full fat strip on the outside and not trimmed, like this: Press* Restaurant – Hanger Steak – 30 Day Challenge – Day Fifteen
