New York Strip Vs Sirloin: Understanding Different Steaks

Written by Luisa Davis on . Posted in food

To me, steak is the quintessential American food. There’s nothing that reminds me of home more than a well-marbled piece of beef that’s been nicely warmed up on the inside with a crisp, browned exterior. While steak can offer an opportunity for a chef to showcase his or her skills, I think that the best way to prepare a steak is to simply let it showcase its incredible natural flavor.

Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in food

My childhood is filled with images of lazy summer afternoons, with my dad hunched over a smoker and barbecuing any cut of meat he could get his hands on.

A good brisket always has that smoked aroma that permeates deep inside the meat. Every bite is infused with flavor, and the meat is so soft and tender, with a very pleasing texture that makes you want to eat more and more. 

But it’s also important to note that brisket is a very tough cut of meat. After all, it’s from the pectorals of a cow- which are the main muscles that a cow uses to support its body. This makes brisket very hard to grill or smoke properly if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Not only was my home-smoked salmon better tasting than the stuff I bought at the store, it was also a bit cheaper.

Knives are somewhat of a contentious topic among kitchen experts. Any internet discussion will invariably involve polarized opinions from one camp or another.
