Q: How do I select the perfect steak?

A: When selecting your steak, always look for well-marbled meat because the fat enhances flavor and promotes tenderness. Also keep in mind that thicker steaks, about 1 ½” thick or more, will give you maximum juiciness. Rib Eye’s or N.Y. Strip Steaks are flavorful, well marbled, and tender cuts for grilling.
