If it's a steak cooked right (salt and pepper only please, cooked medium) I'll eat it.....I tend to prefer NY strip but at this point, since I FINALLY know how to cook a steak right (thanks to YOU ALL), I'm game to try 'em all!

Yes, but it lacks flavor

I like a GOOD NY Strip, and then a good rib eye (bone in). For those not aware, the strip is the tougher, but tastier side of a porterhouse, and a quality strip steak has IMO the best beef flavor of any of the "grilling" steaks. Of course... 1-1/4" to 1-1/2" thick, medium rare.

Like some others have posted, for me the tenderloin (filet) has a less pleasing texture and far less flavor than the other quality cuts. Although when I was in Italy I had a filet with a balsamic vinegar creme sauce that was heavenly, and I am going to try and duplcate the sauce one of these days. I got the list of ingredients from the chef, but not the proportions or the exact process, so that should be a test for my cooking skills.... or lack thereof...

1. Ribeye
2. T Bone
3. NY Strip
4. Filet Mignon
5. Sirloin

It's near impossible to beat a good ribeye in my book.

Tri-tip, it is part of the sirloin. I like to rub the tri-tip with a rub and let it sit overnight before grilling.

I never see tri-tip in the stores here on the East Coast. I've heard so many positive comments about it, I'm eager to give it a try.

Similar but not the same. They come from the same general area, but flank is a leaner cut. If marinated, not overcooked, and sliced on the diagonal, though, flank is delicious and very flavorful, IMO. Some prefer skirt steak (often the choice for fajitas) because it has more marbling.
