Default All About Beef

Recently we picked up four steaks at one of our local stores. The per pound price was very reasonable and the T Bones were a beautiful cut of meat. Christmas day I fired up the grill and cooked those beauties. The steaks were slightly tough but more important the steaks had virtually no taste no flavor at all. What could have been the problem ??

That's what I was thinking. Too lean of cut.

Not enough seasoning.

Or you stabbed it with a fork to turn it.

Didn't let it rest after cooking and all the juices ran out when you cut it.

Over cooked.

Cook steaks on high flipping them once (no fork).

When you say "beautiful".... was it choice or prime? IMO select cuts are not very good. I dont think Supermarkets sell prime. I think Sams does.


Lately I really like sous vide steak cooking followed by a torch.

Like previously stated there are many ways not to cook or handle a steak.

Also, tbones are often thin. Try porterhouse, thicker. Both steaks include a "T"-shaped bone with meat on each side. ...Porterhouse steaks are even more highly valued owing to their larger tenderloin.

You overcooked them and dried them out.

I recall that several years ago we bought some steaks at Wallyworld and they were absolutely tasteless, they were cooked to med/rare and looked wonderful, but they were tasteless, almost like eating fibre - not that I have ever eaten fibre . Get my steaks from different source since then. Sam's and Fresh Market are excellent.

Wow. You buy steaks? I stop by to admire them when I pick up our Christmas Chuck Roast, cooked at 250 for several hours in a tightly lidded Dutch Oven IN the OVEN....with Lipton Onion Soup mix on top and a little water.

Yum.

I say YUM!!!!

The best grade is prime and they have a lot of marbelling. Be careful not to overcook. I do not put salt on my steaks prior to cooking because I think it dries the meat.
