Why Choose USDA Prime?

I’m a steak lover. An enthusiast, if you will.

And I love great steaks. They make my world sunnier, my senses keener and, frankly, my day better.

I DON’T like steaks that merely pass for steak, though. Tough meat. Yuck. No juice or flavor. Ick.

That’s just sad. And so not worth it. That’s really just a tease.

So when I eat a steak there is no debating – USDA Prime vs. Choice. I choose USDA Prime every time.


It’s not a matter of snobbery. Although it could be perceived that way. Because…

USDA Prime is only actually qualified to have that moniker if it’s the top 1-2% of beef available. It’s the top grade that the USDA bestows upon a steak. This grade has the most amount of marbling – the fat running through the beef – that gives it extraordinary flavor and buttery texture. USDA Prime is the highest quality.

In a word – exquisite.

That’s why there is no question for me. If I’m eating steak I want it to be a great experience. Or else, what’s the point?

Look, I don’t eat steak every day. I wish I did. But I don’t. So when I do I want it to be special. Even if I’m eating with a crowd. So I go for USDA Prime when it’s my grill.

But hey, when I’m a guest I can’t always control that. Unless I offer to bring my own steaks. Which I always do.

It’s not rude – it’s “helpful.” People actually love it when you pitch in.

So next time it’s BYOS – Bring Your Own Steaks – remember to treat yourself right and go for the USDA Prime steaks. It’ll be a great memory instead of just a so-so memory.

You can thank me later!
