Steak Cut Guide
Did you know all our Galloway beef is home reared on our own farm by Jock himself? Our beef is then hung for a minimum 28 days to ensure all our steaks are extremely tender and full of flavour before being prepared by our highly skilled butchers.
This handy guide explains our various cuts of steak, so you can decide which one is right for you before browsing our home reared Galloway Beef Steaks.
– Ribeye Steak –
The ribeye steak has become increasingly popular of late, which is no wonder as it is often championed as the most succulent, flavoursome of all steaks. Cut from the foreribs, it is a particularly tender cut with a central eye of fat and plenty of marbling, giving it lots of rich, meaty flavour. It is often cut on the bone to produce a prime rib roast.

– Fillet Steak –
The fillet, cut from the tenderloin, is a long standing favourite. It is often deemed the most prized, luxurious steak of all and is certainly the most lean and tender. Fillets are best enjoyed rare or medium and are often used as a whole cut for more elaborate dishes such as Beef Wellington.

– Sirloin Steak –
Sirloin is a versatile, popular steak. It is cut from the rear of the loin, a well worked muscle making it slightly less tender than the rib eye or fillet. However a sirloin with a good amount of marbling can prove to be both tender and tasty.

– T-Bone Steak –
T-Bone could arguably be crowned the king of steaks, it is the steak of steak lovers. This mighty steak is half sirloin and half fillet, providing the best of both tenderness and flavour. The T bone must be cooked with care due to the two textures and different cooking times.

– Rump Steak –
Rump is a great everyday steak, cut from the rear. A slow grown, mature rump steak cooked medium rare can prove to be both tasty and tender. It can also be used in stews and stir fries when thinly sliced and is great for marinating. Rump steak is often referred to as Popeseye steak in Scotland.
