Steak

Dear Steak…how I love you so. Even with the current trendy health kick you remain my true food indulgence. You are my heavyweight champion of culinary greatness and in honor of your deliciousness will be the first food post on 3QT.

If you know me, you know I have a slight obsession with steak – down to the cuts. It took years and many calories to create this list. I plan on updating it as I discover more delectable cuts. Enjoy!
