At The Mill Kitchen and Bar, we know a thing or two about great steak. Perfectly charred, tender and juicy, with just the right amount of seasoning, we love a well-cooked cut of steak. But what makes the best cut of steak, and how do you choose?
Different Cuts of Steak
The “cut” of a steak refers to the area it came from. The location of the cut affects certain qualities of the meat, like taste and mouthfeel. If it’s in an area that is frequently used or strained, the muscle fibers are leaner and firmer, making it tougher to chew. An area that receives less use will hold more fat deposits, evident in the marbling of the beef, and taste more tender.
- Ribeye: Harvested from ribs in the upper back, near the shoulder, from muscles that aren’t used as often, ribeye steaks are some of the most tender and flavorful steaks imaginable.
- Filet: Cut from the small end of the tenderloin, one of two muscles that run alongside the spine, an area with less connective tissue. Filets are known for their tenderness, and they pair well with rich flavors from other dishes or seasonings.
- Strip: Taken from the short loin, a muscle that does little work, behind the ribs, the New York cut is known for being a tender section that holds up to bold seasonings.
What’s the best cut of steak?
It depends on your personal preferences! Some cuts are marbled with fat, creating a rich and tender mouthfeel, while others are leaner and carry bolder flavors. It also comes down to cooking styles and any enhancements you might add, like mushrooms and onions or grilled shrimp.
At The Mill Kitchen and Bar, we recommend trying the Prime Ribeye Traditional Style to savor the rich flavor of prime beef. This dish comes with Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, sauteed green beans, with a red wine demi-glaze and Maitr’d butter.
The indulgent Fillet Mignon is further elevated when served Mill Style, alongside lobster mac n’ cheese, grilled asparagus, and lobster butter. Our Prime New York Strip holds up well to the bold flavors of our house-made blackened seasoning and whiskey demi-glaze, served alongside brussels sprouts and our pimento cheese bacon risotto.
