I don't think yours need it, but someone mentioned venison, that is ultra lean. For those very lean cuts (be them beef or game) I highly recommend bacon fat for the steaks (or burgers that are ultra lean)

because of this thread, i picked up 4 really nice strip steaks as they were on sale tonight when i went food shopping.

$3.99/lb., and they're nicely marbled. i'll probably make these on friday on the grill when the weather clears up a bit.

I forgot to ask, does anyone want to recommend some great side dishes to go with the steaks? If I don't have the ingredients i'd be willing to make a drive to the grocery store tomorrow.

the classics would be creamed spinach and a baked potato topped with sour cream, chives, and crumbled bacon.

or you could go healthier and do steamed broccoli and oven "fried" potato wedges.

Never marinade a steak, just use a lot of kosher salt and coarse, freshly ground pepper.

I need to replenish my steak supply.
Great pic, gs88.

Pretty much anything goes with steak. Baked potato is common, as is something green (spinach with butter, asparagus). Sautéed mushrooms and onions is nice. A little pasta, like rigatoni, with a little marinara is nice. A big salad and garlic bread works well, especially if there is a little juice that needs pushed around.
If you have any leftover, gently warm it the next day and serve on buttered garlic toast with scambled eggs for breakfast. Pretty much anything you can think of.

Another variation for potatoes.......

Boil some baby potatoes till soft but not falling apart. DRAIN. {keep skin on} Transfer to a fry pan with a neutral oil {1/2 a cup or so} and LOTS of sliced garlic and shallots MED HEAT. Press each potato lightly with a firm spatula so you have 2 flat sides. Season heavily with salt and pepper and brown potatoes turning frequenty for 15 minutes or till desired browness is achieved.

My daughter LOVES these potatoes to the point of "OK Mom, you and Dad have 3 each, I get the rest!"
