Perfect Steak: What to Look For
Steak is a national pastime. From the established and renowned steak houses of NYC to the backyard bbq's across the country, from restaurants that serve steak strips on salads to the Tex-Mex fajitas that serve them in tortillas, steak is consumed everywhere.

Price isn't a sufficient indicator, nor is the fact that it's served in a fancy steak house. Read on to learn what to ask for, and how to tell if what you're putting inside you is the perfect steak, or some expensive imitation rip-off.
