    I was talking to a nutritionist recently and he said there are NO actual studies that show red meat is bad for you. He said it's processed meat that'll kill you, primarily because of salt and nitrites.

    I have no idea if he's being truthful or not, and really don't care... I like steak, I eat steak.

    I get hand cut ribeyes from my local meat market, Eckermann's

    It's just down the road from me, out in the boondocks.

    I usually get them about 1 1/2 inches thick. They cut them right there in front of you.

    $7.99 a pound, about half price from what you get elsewhere.

    Slight marinade, some light spice, medium rare, and Mmmmm, Mmmmm good.

    Also, they have the best fresh sausage I've ever had (but you have to get it at their main location, as it's truly "fresh". The stuff they sell in the grocery stores is good, but not quite the same)

    Cheers,
    Doug

    Too much if anything will kill you.

    If you avoid red meat, alcohol, loose women and tobacco you don't live longer, it just feels like it.

    While I love a good steak - especially Filet Mignon or Tournedos - my vote for best meat goes to reindeer tenderloin or sirloin. Several master chefs agree with me. Best served with mushrooms, Brussels sprout, stirred fresh partridgeberries, shallots, potatoes and a game sauce.

    Growing up on the farm we always had steak, always. I prefer roasted chicken these days.

    I like most of 'em, won't pay the extra for filet because it doesn't have enough flavor for me. Flatiron is nice, tender, relatively cheap & low-fat. One of those sliced up with a chimichurri sauce is good eating.

    What I really like to do, though, is get my butcher to cut me a double-thick sirloin, about 2 and a half inches thick. Use a meat thermometer, grill it to 125 or so, then let it rest ten minutes and slice. Really good. And the sight of that giant plug of beef coming off the grill will inspire respect and possibly terror in your guests.

    Not sure if you meant it was baloney that flat iron was $5/pound, or you would prefer $5/pound bologna to steak.

    So I tried to cover both.

    Too late!:twisted:

    But really, why do you think the Sami people breeds enormous herds of reindeer? Just for fun? They have even exported a number of reindeer to Alaska.

    For me, Elk steak that I harvested. Fillet mignon, tenderloin, sirloin whatever.
    Rub some olive oil stick some steak spice to it and cook it to a medium rare on the bbq...Mmmm. Best ever. Extremely high in protein and lean. Wild Elk, all they ever eat is sticks, grass and creek water. Kinda of a weird thing when you are reaching in there to pull out that fillet mignon, but man, its good stuff.

    As long as it's rare, I don't care!

    I actually prefer grass fed beef over grain fed, probably because that's what i grew up eating. Not a big fan of really marbled cuts. I like the taste of meat rather than fat.

    And did I mention it has to be rare? Yeah, it has to be rare.

    Elk is good, but I'll take a whitetail over just about anything. Deer chops, oh yeah!
