Buying tips for steaks
- Many factors can affect the tenderness and flavour of a steak, like its breed, feed, cooking method and how long it has been aged. Be sure to ask your meat retailer about it next time, so you can find the perfect steak for you.
- The best way to ensure you select the right beef for a chosen cooking method is to look for Meat Standards Australia (MSA) graded beef. Meat Standards Australia (MSA) is a grading system that provides consumers with an easy way to identify the right cut of beef for a particular cooking method. For more information go to the MSA page.
- Whatever cut you choose only buy steaks of an even thickness, not wedge shaped – this way they’ll cook evenly.
