Popular Steak Recipes

There's a reason steakhouses dot the landscape in every town in America - most of us can't resist the siren call of a juicy, perfectly cooked steak. What cut you choose for steak recipes depends on what you're looking for - and what you want to pay. Flank steak, for example, has killer flavor but can be tough unless it's cooked and sliced correctly. Tenderloin lives up to its "tender" label, but it's expensive, and can be a bit bland. Rib-eyes have lots of fat marbled throughout, which makes them very tender and full of flavor - a great steak for grilling. A T-bone (or Porterhouse) is another good choice, since they've got tenderloin on one side of the bone and a strip steak on the other. If you're on a budget, opt for flank steak (a quick sear is what you're looking for, then cut across the grain on the bias) or sirloin steak (from just behind the short loin; sirloins are large, but thin and lean like flank steak). To get the most out of any cut, however, start with a very hot pan or grill to get a flavorful caramelized crust, then finish the steak to desired degree of doneness at a lower flame. Charred on the outside, pink and juicy within - steak perfection.

London Broil with Cherry-Balsamic Sauce

London broil is a thicker cut of steak that benefits from the tenderizing effects of a marinade. Ours does its job and then doubles as a sauce when simmered with some shallots. Use any steak leftovers on top of a salad or in a sandwich with fresh spinach leaves.

Salt & Pepper Sirloin

A simple grilled steak topped with tangy tomatillo salsa is a favorite of EatingWell's Food Editor, Jim Romanoff. Instead of serving a slab of steak, he likes to slice it and fan it on the plates. Not only is it more attractive this way, it is easier to control portion sizes.

Thai Beef Salad

The steak for a Thai salad is often marinated before it's broiled and that's a shame, because most of those flavorings burn off and turn to naught. For the best taste, first sear the steak, then let it sit overnight in the marinade before tossing it with the greens.
