Everybody loves a properly grilled steak hot off the barbeque.
However, if you buy cuts of beef thinking that the more expensive the steak the better, then you may be disappointed when it comes time to eat that steak!
If money is no object, go for the rib eye, the tenderloin, the Porterhouse/T-bone or the strip; but if you’re looking for value for money try a flat boned sirloin for a great beefy flavor, or even cheaper, a top round steak. ~Source
