Popular Steak Cuts In Order Of Tenderness

In honour of our ‘Tuesday Foodie’ evening at Barbecoa, a popular barbecue steak house, we are sharing with you some of the most popular steak cuts in order of tenderness. At the top of the tender pile:

Tenderloin Steak: This steak is cut from the beef tenderloin and is the most tender. Tenderloin steaks like the ‘Filet Mignon’ are popular for their delicate butter like texture.


Top Loin Steak: This is one of the most versatile steaks being tender and flavourful. Basically a T-Bone steak with the tenderloin meat removed. Well known as a New York Strip Steak.


T-Bone Steak: Very similar to a porterhouse cut taken from the short loin, includes a T-shaped bone with meat on each side. Has less of the pricey tenderloin meat.


Rib Eye Steak: A cut from the roast that sits at the top of the rib primal. The excellent marbling of this popular cut gives it a rich and juicy flavour.


Sirloin Steak: Perfect for big eaters on a budget. A cut from the rear back portion of the animal. A succulent yet lean boneless cut.
