Boneless Strip Loin Steak

A tender and lean cut, strip steak is a favourite for grilling. Sometimes referred to as a New York or Kansas City strip, they are a popular choice in steakhouses. If you want to experiment with steak beyond the grill, try cooking strip steak in a skillet or broiling it.


Flank Steak

The intense beef flavour of flank steak is one of its signature characteristics. Since it is a thinner and coarser cut, slicing against the grain is especially important when preparing. Favourite flank recipes usually include marinating and grilling it or slicing it thin and stir-frying.


Tenderloin Roast

If you’re looking for simplicity and variety in your meals, this is going to be a favourite! Tenderloin roast is tender, juicy and flavourful and although it is delicious cooked many ways, it’s thoroughly enjoyable with nothing more than a bit of salt and pepper. Enjoy it grilled, oven-roasted, broiled, or just about any way you like to prepare beef.


Top Round Steak

When you just need a reliable option for an easy weekday meal, this thick and versatile cut is a great choice. Broiling or slow cooking will bring out its best qualities, but it’s also great when prepared on the grill or in a skillet. As cuts from this part of the animal are used for movement, they are among extra-lean cut; but don’t let the lack of fat fool you – this is a very flavourful piece of beef.


  • Firing up the grill for that top round steak? Add asparagus to the shopping list and enjoy an easy, delicious serving of greens. Simply toss the asparagus with olive oil, then arrange it on the grill around your marinated steak. Grill the asparagus for 6-10 minutes, turning occasionally, or until crisp-tender. Immediately sprinkle with Parmesan and serve with prepared steak.

This versatile cut is also among the most budget-friendly of lean beef cuts, offering a lot of flavour and flexibility to your menu for less cost. Braising or stewing sirloin tip will enhance the tenderness, and as long as it is not overcooked, you can expect a juicy, flavourful experience.


Chuck Tender Roast

Another lean choice, chuck tender roast is one of the cuts from the shoulder area, which are known for their rich, beefy flavour. Slow cooking or roasting in a pot are the best choices for this cut, which will allow it to tenderize. It’s also a great choice when cut into cubes for a slow-cooked beef stew.
