Butchering a Strip Loin

Step 1

Buying a whole strip loin is a great way to save money on strip steaks.

Step 2

You'll need to trim away most of the thick "fat cap" on the top side.

Step 3

Next, remove the long section of scraggy meat and fat on the thinnest edge.

Step 4

Cutting the loin yourself allows you to make the steaks just the right thickness.

Step 5

After cutting the steaks, go back and trim the fat around the outer edges to about ¼ inch.

Step 6

Grill some of the steaks now and freeze the remaining ones for another day.
