  • Published: 18 November 2019
  • There are exactly 12 types of steak, no more, no less. Wait.. what's that? Ok, we just got word that there are actually a few more types of steak, but what defines a steak anyway? Amiel Stanek is here to break down the features of 12 types of steak based on cut, cattle breed, diet and age and how long the meat was aged. Whether it's the always popular Angus T-bone or the Piedmontese porterhouse, each steak has its own unique attributes and quality is truly in the eye of the beholder.

              I’ve never seen steak cut like that. It’s like watching a lefty write.

                Seems to me like dry aged, grass fed, adult, but not too old when slaughtered would make for an ideal steak. Would be so cool to raise those.

                    I genuinely feel sick every time he cuts another steak up to show how red and pink this meat is... please cook it until it's dead. 😂 I eat medium-well or well-done so I feel so disgusted.

                      That’s ruining a great cut like that with anything more than medium doneness. Eat a burger if you want it cooked that much.

                                    took me a second with the way he said Hereford my parents raised beef cows for a while and I learned to pronounce it a bit different. Certainly not a big deal or anything just made me laugh a bit.

Although if you care at all, about clean water, air or the environment you'd at least cut down your meat consumption. How's that for a point?! Thank you for asking...
