Default The battle for steak SUPREMACY

The wife and I can never decided what our favorite cut of steak is, so we decided to do a little side by side taste test. I choose four different cuts a filet, strip, ribeye, and delmonico, all steaks where choice grade and bought at a great local butcher.

The players

Ready for the grill

The dome up to temp

On the grill

After the flip

The Strip

The Ribeye

The Delmonico

The Filet

Served with roasted potatoes and asparagus

A nice Cesar salad

And washed down with a 2004 V. Sattui Moricoli Vineyard cab



This was a really fun cook and obviously great to eat. All steaks after being pulled from the grill where given a nice rest and sliced so we could sample them separately.

The winner, and to my surprise was the NEW YORK STRIP. It really held up well to the high heat sear, developed a nice crust, had great beef flavor and a nice texture like a steak should have.

Nice looking dinner. I wish I could talk my wife into doing that sort of taste test ... every week. For the record, she prefers strip steaks and I prefer ribeyes, which means we almost always get strip steaks.

Great experiment and presentation! I would think it would be hard to decide between the NY strip and ribeye.

My wife and I were die hard ribeye fans until we recently discovered the same thing and made the switch to the New York Strip. I buy a whole slab of "prime" strips from Costco, cut them into steaks and vac pack them into two packs.

I love me a ribeye steak, too -- definitely my favorite. But, I love the NY Strip at Ruth's Chris steakhouse. I need to buy some prime strips to cook up at home.

I don't see a loser in the bunch. But, like Caseydog, I love a strip from Ruth's Chris.

excellent experiment. good eats for sure!

one note...a delmonico and a ribeye are the same thing. you just had 1 bone in and 1 boneless.

nice cook nonetheless.

That's interesting, the rib steak and Delmonico looked, cooked, and tasted very different. I'll have to go back to the butcher and ask where each steak was cut from. The rib steak didn't seem to do as well as the others with the high heat grilling, it really seemed to loose a lot of moisture.

Thanks for the info, I have more homework to do.

look at the pics closely. you'll see they are the same cut.

the bone DOES make a difference in cooking, however.

A strip beats a ribeye? I guess it's true if you way overcook it.

I was shocked as well, every time I've had a ribeye its been great, but side by side with the strip, I enjoyed the strip more. I preferred the taste and texture of the strip over the ribeye, personal preference I guess.

Here's a pic of the ribeye sliced, I don't think I "way overcooked it".
