The Best Steak Cuts For Grilling (PHOTOS)

When you think of grilling, one of the first foods that come to mind for many people is steak -- a thick, juicy one, ready to slice into. But before you get grilling, what steak are you buying? There are so many cuts available in the supermarket that it can be difficult to choose, especially if you don't know that much about beef.

Don't fret, we've got a great guide to help you make a decision. Most of these cuts are readily available in the supermarket, but if there's one you've never seen before, ask the butcher if they might have them in the back. Cuts like the flatiron or the hanger aren't that commonly sold, so they're not often prepackaged. But other cuts like the ribeye and Porterhouse are always easy to find -- they're the ones that are the most popular and expensive. Our guide includes all of these and some that are more budget-friendly.

Porterhouse steaks, cut from the rear end of the short loin, give you 2-in-1 steaks that are great for grilling: it features a well-marbled strip on one side and a lean and tender filet on the other divided by a small T-shaped bone (farther up the short loin is the T-bone steak). Feel free to swap Porterhouse with T-bone, but if you like more of the tender filet choose the Porterhouse. All you need to do is a quick seasoning of salt and pepper before grilling, but you can do a quick marinade if you like. Make sure to grill it to between medium-rare and medium.
