Frequently Asked Questions

The great thing about T-bone steak is that is has amazing naturally delicious flavours that don’t need to be enhanced by lots of other flavourings. Therefore, all you need to season this meat is some good salt and pepper.  

T-bone steak is cut from the short loin subprimal found at the front of the larger loin primal. This can be found close to the middle of the animal’s back, between the ribs and sirloin sections. The short loin itself has two other subprimal cuts – the tenderloin and the beef short loin. This is where filet mignon and New York strip cuts come from respectively. This location produces steaks with lean and tender meat, with these characteristics also applying to T-bone steaks. 

Absolutely! There’s a reason T-bone steak is most often found at high-end restaurants and steakhouses. It has excellent marbling, leading to a deep meaty flavour profile. As the name suggests, the steak has a T-shaped cross-section of bone running through it. This enhances the flavour further and makes for a unique carving experience.
