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.
