Default What's the difference?

...between boneless rib eye steak and boneless new york strip?
there must be, but they look and taste alike and when on sale they're the same price?

Two different cuts of meat from different parts of the cow. Ribeye is self explanatory. New York Strip is just a fancy yankee name for a piece of sirloin.

Ribeyes are much better IMO.

Ribeyes have a much higher fat content, therefore IMO a much better steak. Any way you cook it, it's a big big step up from peanut butter.

The NY strip is the non-tenderloiin side of a T-bone, or porterhouse. Cut from the strip loin, the strip steak consists of a muscle that does little work, and so it is fairly tender. Unlike the nearby tenderloin, the strip loin is a sizable muscle, allowing it to be cut into the larger portions favored by many steak eaters.

As said, when still attached to the bone, and with a piece of the beef tenderloin also included, the strip steak becomes a T-bone steak or a porterhouse. The strip steak also is known in certain areas as striploin, shell steak, Delmonico, New York or Kansas City strip steak and is one of the highest quality beef steaks on the market.

There are lots of great strip steak recipies on the internet - anything with a salt rub and seared and then served with mushrooms in a rich heavy cream and the steak juice sauce is the way to go. Don't overcook!!! Email me if you want my personal favorite.

The boneless rib eye (Yummie!!!!!!) is a higher quality and one of the best steaks available, It also is called a Delmonico around here. You almost alway eat it grilled or fried and it is not often used in complicated prepared dishes. "Prime rib" is the same cut only from prime not "choice" or lower or leaner grades of beef, and it is served with the bone.


Only the tenderloin (also called Filet Mignon in fancy places) is considered a better cut.

Personally if I don't get a rib eye I have prefer a good grade of ground round hamburger.

I'm hungry - beef - its whats for dinner!!!!

Excuse me, I gotta go fire up the grill!

LI, you nailed my order of preference: tenderloin (filet), ribeye, T-bone, then strip.

I like em all, especially after a couple of Grey Goose martinis to whet the appetite! In fact, I am not sure I know how to operate the grill without a martini. Just aint the same.

Smooth on weekdays, crunchy on weekends and holidays.

Now that's a cut most folks probably don't know too well. I used to buy those because they were cheap and I was broke. But I gotta tell you, those are mighty tasty on the grill.

No doubt a good filet is hard to beat, ribeye is second, and a porterhouse is next. All modesty aside, I can never go out and get a steak at a restaurant which is better than what I can grill at home. I paid $28 for a dang 16oz porterhouse in Lauderdale while down for the show, and that sucker was about a half inch thick and tough as Hillary Clinton's underwear.

Thanks everyone. It's rib-eye for me. Going on a 5 day camp/hunt starting Friday and wanted to take the best steak with me.

On that same subject. My bro-in-law while i was over in San Fran the other week marinated a meat. He called it Tri-tip i believe it a sirloin i think. But we grilled it up for breakfast with some eggs and potatoes and an Achor Steam beer (had no choice it was the morning before he married my sister)
I think that was the first i heard of tri-tip. Over here in FL is there another name for it. He said it was reasonable in price. It was definitely good and very tender after soaking all night in wiskey and spices. It already had a great flavor by itself. I read a bit about it but not sure if i'll find it here called the same.

Any knowledge on this? If i can find it i want to grill it up in Miami at the Canes game Saturday.

Figured i thow in a question of my own gagme. Looks like you got your answer

I hear some of those San Francisco boys really know their meats... and fruits too!

Sounds like a drunken sirloin tip kinda thing to me.

I was referring to the steak as being drunk from being soaked in whiskey overnight!

I've never tried whiskey as a marinade before, then again I'm not much on drinking whiskey. I see the Jack Daniels barbecue products around here all the time, but just straight whiskey as a marinade sounds a little rough.

Yep, it is fairly inexpensive but I prefer a good tender chuck eye steak to the more expensive cuts. I think it is the amount of fat in the steak that makes it taste so good.

Ah..Didn't taste the wiskey actually, maybe he used it as a tenderizer, i dont know. Wasnt bad at all tho. That was the first i've heard of it myself.


gagme - Trust me if i find something to take..its going home w/me!



KJS - I agree, the right amount of fat has to be in a steak. Id rather a steak not be too lean.
