What's your Favorite steak?

So one of the real pleasures of Low-Carbing is the freedom to have a nice juicy steak whenever you want.
But the other day, I realized I always choose one particular cut, Why not try some others? Wouldn't that be fun experiment?

So I did. And I learned, I always choose Ribeye because, well, I like it the very best! (My second-favorite? Steak tips -- Yummy!)

Mmmm, ribeye steak. Pan-broiled, pan-fried, foreman-grilled, or broiled. Lots of seasoning to almost none, done anywhere from medium-rare to all-the-way-well, with lots of veggies or all alone.
I love me some ribeye steak!

So.. what's your favorite steak?

Always a ribeye cooked medium rare. When I do them at home, I often add a pat of Boursin garlic and herb cheese on top in place of compound butter.

Ribeye pan fried in cajun butter medium rare. But today I bought filet mignon on sale....will panfry in butter in my big ol' cast iron pan.

For me to pan fry, it's gotta be cast iron!

Fillet. I know it's not the most flavourful, but I just love the texture - preferably cooked black 'n blue. Tonight we have 2 lovely ribeyes though - going to have mine smothered in garlic butter, with creamed spinach and pan fried mushrooms. Waiting for husband to get home so I can start cooking!

That would make sense if steak was always charred (by which I mean sort of chargrilled, not burned) on the outside, but it's not. Black and blue is a term recognised by most steak restaurants (in the UK anyway, the US may differ!). The 'blue' part is the usual term for really, really, rare steak - makes very little sense, as it's actually red, but there you go!

Tenderloin! I love the texture and am not a fan of fatty steaks. New York strip, Porterhouse and T-bones are great also - but I have to trim them well.

OH man! Now I know why I love the low-carb boards!! This thread is so refreshing to see! DH & I raise beef and it's amazing how much the beef industry gets knocked around. I'll leave it at that..
As to my favorite steak-sirloin-hands down.

I like Striploins the best probably and Ribeye when I want something fattier. I also love Tenderloin. (Heck I love em all!)
But I have to ask, what exactly is Porterhouse? I don't know that I've had that or know what it is.

A Porterhouse is like a big T-bone with the tenderloin attached on the other side of the bone.

Okay but isn't a T-bone with the one side of the bone the striploin or strip and the other side the tenderloin? Is it the same thing?
