Top Grill Masters In The Country All Say This Is The Best Cut Of Steak
There are so many cuts of beef that it can be intimidating to someone who just wants the best steak for their barbecue and it won’t taste like a burnt tire. The problem is that each cut has their own positive and negative attributes and each steak has different amounts of fat content, tenderness, marbling, flavor, and texture. So I asked some of the top professional grill masters in the country on what is the best cut of steak. There was one resounding answer.
I attended the finals of the 2018 Steakmaster Series in Orlando, Florida last week and witnessed grilling greatness. The final seven Grill Masters out-barbecued over 5,000 fellow competitors to make it to the championship. Longhorn Steakhouse handed out over $200,000 in cash prizes during the heated competition.
I interviewed the “Magnificent Seven’ finalists from the 2018 Steakmaster Series, including Michelle Cerveny from Ohio, who was crowned the champion. I asked these top grillers from around this great nation one simple question: “What is the best cut of meat?” All seven Grill Masters answered without hesitation that ribeye is the best cut of steak.
This absolutely makes sense that ribeye is the best cut of beef since it has the most marbling of all the steaks. This means that there are slim streaks of fat inside the ribeye. As everyone knows, fat is flavor. This fatty marbling provides the ribeye with the most buttery flavor.
