Most Popular Steaks

Most Popular Steaks

What are the most popular steaks?

Depends on who you ask.

There are all types of steak rankings, but American food expert John Mitzewich puts them in this order:

  1. Ribeye
  2. Kansas City Strip Steak
  3. Filet Mignon
  4. T-bone Steak
  5. Porterhouse Steak
  6. Flank Steak
  7. Top Sirloin Steak

And no matter what order you rank them in, it’s pretty likely each one of these cuts will make the list.

My favorite has always been the ribeye for its extremely flavorful taste. Bone-in or out, it’s a winner in my book.

Filet mignon seems to be popular with the ladies. It’s delicate, tender and if you buy the right quality you can cut it with a fork. It’s the #1 customer favorite at The Kansas City Steak Company – so much so that they’ve designated August as Filet Mignon Month.

KC strips are perfect for grilling, along with T-bones and Porterhouse. And Top Sirloin is the way to go when you’re making steak sandwiches.

Flank steak is delicious for Mexican dishes like fajitas, tacos and more.

So what are the steaks that are most popular with YOU? Because, really, the best cut of steak is the one you enjoy.

How to Build a Kabob

How to Build a Kabob

A kabob, when you get right down to it, is grilled steak on a stick.

It’s bite-sized and easy to eat. And who wouldn’t want a steak that’s easy to eat? That sounds like paradise to me.

If you follow these grilling steak tips, you’ll have perfect steaks for kabobs.

But if you REALLY want perfect kabob meat, try these beef tenderloin tips.

They’re juicy and cut perfectly for kabob making. To me, they’re the best cut of steak for a kabob.

Then, customize YOUR kabob with fruits and vegetables that speak to you.

Yes, fruit!

Ever put pineapple on a kabob?


How about peaches, plantains or apples?

Yes, it can be done! And it’s delicious!

Don’t forget about the all-important red and green peppers, onions and tomatoes, too. Not only do they flavor your kabob spectacularly, but they make a gorgeous presentation!

Have fun being creative and build a kabob that suits YOU. There really are no rules except that what foods you select must stay on the skewer.

Applesauce? Not so much.

Enjoy some kabobs this weekend – just the way you like them!

Backyard Favorites

Do you love cookouts in the backyard?

Me too!

And there are some essentials that absolutely MUST be included in my cookouts no matter who is coming.

  1. Everybody loves a burger and if there are kids around these are non-negotiable. You grill ‘em and they WILL be eaten.
  2. Top Sirloin Steaks. Why? Because they cook up so well on the grill. These are a crowd pleaser and the flavor is really enhanced when they’re grilled.
  3. Kansas City Strip Steaks. To me, this is a finer cut and it’s really packed with flavor. They’re really juicy when grilled to, say, a medium rare. So delicious!

Steaks are a must-have in my house. And when grilling steak, you’ve gotta think about the best cut of steak for the grill (and your taste buds). Hey, we’ve all got our preferences, right?

All of these essentials are included in this Backyard Favorite combo. And the price is discounted when they’re purchased all together. Bonus!

So invite the neighbors, friends, family, church groups, busloads of tourists, and cook up some backyard favorites this weekend.

You’ll be glad you did!
