Default What is steak, pardon my poor English

I can google and find picture of a cattle, and I can find names of different part.
But I am not sure what steak stands for

Technically, steak is any cut of meat that is sliced from a larger cut of meat, that has no bones in it. Typically, this meat comes from what is called a primal cut.

so...this is a sirloin primal


this is a sirloin steak


Beef tenderloin primal


beef tenderloin steak

I would add generally no bone. Porterhouse/t-bone both have bones and both are called steaks.

That is a excellent question. The way I take your question is you would like to understand the origin of the term. My thoughts have been a slab of meat cooked on a stick so I did a dictionary search and I am correct
"
Origin:
1400–50; late Middle English steike < Old Norse steik meat roasted on a stick

Don't worry about the English. Most of us here abuse it daily myself included

A steak is any cut of meat cut off a larger piece. It can be any type of meat, but it mostly is referred to with beef. You can have a pork steak, or even a tuna steak, but if someone invites you to their favorite 'steakhouse', expect it to be beef.

Although fairly new to the Brethren, I would like to commend everyone with the help and advice that everyone is willing to give to those with questions. It is very refreshing to know that in the fast pace world that we live in, there are those that are willing to help others. Once again, thank you

If only the truth was so noble. Some of us ignore our fast paced lives all day and hang around this forum and talk meat all day.
