I'm watching BBQ Pitmasters and Googling a new steak they are cooking, Vegas Strip. Has anyone run across one yet?

Yes. It's unbelievably overpriced NY Strip. It was not bad for the newest designer meat to hit the market.

The guy invented flat iron steak. I'm not discounting his latest "discovery", which is really nothing more than different butchering.

Are you comparing it to NY Strip in flavor, texture and (over)price?
I couldn't find any articles saying which steak it was most like... nor the price.

Based on the video, the Vegas strip (chuck) is no where near the NY Strip (loin).

Well, true enough. But having had one, and with the help of this article, it is one overpriced and marketed piece of beef.

I agree. There has to be something that can be over-hyped. It may be a fine steak but there is too much hyperbole in promoting it. It's 3 things wrong with the 'craze' not the steak.

Duking it out with a migraine that I woke up with. Went to work long enough to get everything done that had to be done today, then came home and went to bed. Got up a bit ago and still have a nagging throb in the back of my head and nausea.

Watching, The Voice, and then back to bed.

Agreed Andy. The steak it self was fine. Excellent maybe. But worth the price over a NY Strip or a Rib Eye....no way.

Sorry Pacanis, I had hoped to answer your question.
