    rib eye is very nice, well if cooked by someone else

    Ribeye is the best blend of quality and price - Fillet is amazing if served blue or rare and if I dine out and its available, T-bone - half sirloin, half fillet - all meat!! :lol:

    Rib-eye FTW

    Although i love skirt too when i braise/stew it

    I prefer fillet - no fat, and if it's from good stock and well hung (cough!) you just can't beat it.

    hi moob, best steak i ever had was last year in Aus, was from the "Hog's Breath Cafe" chain of restaurants, slow cook their steak for 18 hours!!!!, was a really strange experience eating it, was like cutting butter (that had been in the fridge) was so nice it felt odd?

    Was that because you had to wait so long for it CDM? :lol:

    Seriously though, I know what you mean, there are some places that just seem to know how to cook a good fillet and make it taste like nothing you could manage at home. I should know, I've been trying to replicate it for about 10 years!

    Hi f&f hows you this evening,

    And moob, i cant replicate what seems to be easy to cook recipes, follow them from the book and they end up tasting like i have cooked them:roll:, one thing though, at least when i was a lad my mum made sure i knew how to cook, use a washing machine, iron and put the toilet seat down:)

    its like a porterhouse but without the tenderloin and the bone its basically the short loin, very tender and usually thick cut


    more tasty than the top top cuts like chateaubriand, filet mignon and tournedos as they dont have as much fat although they are generally the most expensive and tender

    Fillet, rare of course

    round about the same as rib eye give or take..... kinda been spoilt living in oz with much cheaper prices than over here

    god knows over here but sounds about the same in quids as it is in dollars over there

    rib eye all the way baby!!

    t bone is back on some menus now

    I have to say im a ribeye man aswell, b8ut only on special occasions.
    Fillet just doesnt have the texture for me. i mean its tasty but still :P

    Usually i will just go with a decent piece of rump or sirloin, really heavily salt it (read: cake) it in coarse salt for about 20-30 minutes before cooking then rinse really well and pat dry, then cook

    Great flavour and texture from a cheap cut of meat try it! you will be surprised! (just make sure you dont use normal table salt as it will just disolve and heavily salt the meat :P)
