    Best, juiciest, most fatty cut of steak?

    I just came home with tri-tip and cooked it on my Cuisinart Griddler. Not that impressed.. I thought it was going to be really tender & juicy, but then I read later it's a good "lean" cut. Bah!

    What's a good cut of steak for us Primal types who aren't afraid of fatty meats?

    Tongue. Not technically steak but the best and fattiest part of the cow.

    Just a note on tri tip--used to be the cut for stew meat! At least until the Santa Maria style BBQ got popular in the 80's..... Fattiest steak, prime rib or rib eye (same cut--prime has the bone, rib eye doesn't) or maybe a nice untrimmed Tbone or Porterhouse...

    Ah you're right. Technically rib eye does have more fat to protein. For whatever reason steaks, even the fattier ones just never seem fatty enough when compared to the tongue. I think it's because in the tongue all of the fat and protein are intertwined in a juicy, fleshy bundle of goodness so no bite is lacking in fat. Not that I have much against steaks.

    I've had a whole tongue before, and it wasn't fatty at all. Maybe because it was grass-fed? It was tough to chew and not very tasty. Meh. Not something I'd care to buy again.
